Many of North America's nesting birds spend the winter in tropical regions throughout the Caribbean, including Puerto Rico. Although the island measures only 35 miles north to south and 100 miles east to west - about two-thirds the size of Connecticut - over 350 bird species have been recorded there. Of these, about 120 are nesting, while 93 are considered accidental and 35 introduced. Puerto Rico also features 16 endemic species, which is more than the 11 endemics in the entire Lower 48 States! Twenty-five species endemic to the West Indies can also be found there. Enjoy a winter getaway to warm tropical breezes among great bird species like Elfin Woods Warbler, Puerto Rican Tody, and the extremely rare Puerto Rican Parrot. Leader: Michelle Ekman
