2017 Christmas Bird Count Information

November: Trinidad and Tobago: A Tale of Two (or Three) Islands

Mary Lane & Steve Davis

Join us November 20 when Mary Lane and Steve Davis will be will be our guest speakers.

The Republic of Trinidad and Tobago is the southern-most nation in the Caribbean Ocean. It is only 6.8 miles from Venezuela and shares more of its biodiversity with South America than with other Caribbean islands. The country boasts several ecosystems that support nearly 500 species of birds.

Mary and Steve are both retired; Mary from the OU Health Sciences Center Department of Surgery, and Steve from the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services. Their interest in birding began to crystallize when Steve’s uncle gave them a Nikon DSLR camera a few years ago. At that time, they began to take pictures of birds on their outings, joined OKC Audubon and began attending a few birding festivals. In December 2014, they went on their first international birding trip, to Panama.

They had the opportunity to visit Trinidad and Tobago in the Spring of 2016, along with Larry Mays, Mike Mather, and a group of birders from Arkansas. Mary & Steve stayed in three locations on the two islands, including the Asa Wright Nature Center, a former coffee plantation that is now a wildlife sanctuary. They traveled to a variety of habitats on the two islands and visited a third island, Little Tobago, taking many photos along the way. They will talk about the birds they observed.

Our meetings are held September through June on the third Monday of each month (with the exception of January, when the meeting is held on the fourth Monday). Meetings begin at 7 p.m. Visitors are always welcome.

Meeting Location:

Our meetings are held at the Will Rogers Garden center, located at the intersection of NW 36th Street and I-44.
