Bird Watching

The north shore being one of the less developed parts of St. Croix, it is the perfect habitat for various species of birds.  A former and soon to be repeat guest, John Parke, to whom we owe a debt of gratitude, identified the various species listed below that he observed while sitting on the porch at Arawak Bay.  He also identified an additional 13 species that he saw while traveling around St. Croix. So, if you are an avid birdwatcher, you may want to consider a visit to St. Croix and a stay at Arawak Bay.  We are waiting for Mr. Parke to identify the exact specie of blue heron that is now nesting under the bar at Arawak Bay.  Here are the species he observed:
