Photographic Big Year

For 2017, I will be attempting to photograph 100+ birds seen in Barbados that calendar year. This page will house the best photo of each species I am able to capture. I will be periodically updating the page throughout the year adding new species and replacing existing images if better one are taken. I will delay posting very poor quality or documentation images unless no better example of the specie is secured. Please check this page for updates, leave your comments and tips and as always enjoy your birding.
