Bird of the Year 2014 (Local Birders)

Here are a few 2014 highlights from my fellow birders and Photographers
 

Dr. John Webster (Birder, Photographer)


John's Bird of 2014 was his second major find for the year. The first being a Common Cuckoo he saw in the parish of St. Lucy.

Richard Roach (Photographer)


Richard always reminds me that he is not a birder but that he is a bird photographer, so he does not have a bird of the year, he has a photograph of the year.

Glenn R Carmichael (Birder)

Glenn, an Englishman, spent the latter part of this year birding with us here in Barbados. He has been credited for first sighting three Fulvous Whistling Ducks at WSR, a major record for the island.  Thanks Glenn!!
