Bird Watching

Bird Watching

Birds on wings is what we call our bird watching tour to the Syndicate rainforest and plantation area. With your guide depart Roseau and drive along the island's west coast passing through several maritime villages, doing some birding along the way if the opportunity presents itself.
Finally turning inland to Syndicate, passing through agricultural crops which you will find quite interesting. When you arrive at the Syndicate Nature Trail, you will be briefed by your guide about the birding procedures before you enter some of Dominica's finest Oceanic Rainforest.
The trail is well maintained and you will see some amazing specimens of hardwood trees

There will be epiphytes and stranglers competing for their place in the sun using the same stepping stone, a host tree.
The rainforest is a fascinating place for those who love to see a perfect eco system which creates symbiotic relationships within its own domain to enhance its own survival

You will marvel at the giant Gommier and Chattagnier trees as you make your way through this magnifficent eco system. Some birds likely to be seen are:
The Sisserou parrot, the Jacko parrot both are endemic and endangered species. The stolid flycatcher, the Rufus Throated Solitaire, the Pearly Eyed Thrasher, the Scaly Breasted Thrasher, the Brown Trembler, the Lesser Antillian Pewee, the Mangrove Cuckoo,the Blue Headed Hummingbird
