Birds of Caribbean

Birding in Caribbean

birds are arguably the most visible wildlife on any Caribbean island. They are also colorful, active and display all sorts of interesting behavior. Birds are therefore an excellent portal to the natural world and are a starting point to engage audiences in their surrounding environment.

The Birds

The Caribbean is home to over 700 species of bird, including 171 species that are endemic to the region and found nowhere else in the world. In fact, there are over 110 bird species in the Caribbean that only live on one island. Overall, half of the resident birds—the ones that don’t migrate—in the region are endemic. The abundance of endemic species is one reason why the region is considered a biodiversity hotspot, and why conservation in the region is so important.

The region is also the seasonal home for over 150 migratory species that winter in the region after breeding in North America during the summer or travel through the region on their way to South America. As a stopover or wintering ground, the Caribbean is a vital resource for these migrants as they make their astounding journeys—thousands of miles each year!
