Birds of Saba

I only photographed a few, but they were nice. The great egret was near the trailhead of the Sandy Cruz Trail. When we were on Saba last time in October, several locals mentioned the stray great egret that had come by in a summer storm and was hanging out. Perhaps this is the same one. A lack of ponds and mangroves makes Saba a less than ideal habitat for this bird. We also saw the Antillean crested hummingbird and I saw a small flock of scaly-naped pigeons in Windwardside. These pigeons are also seen on St. Martin, but rarely, because they were hunted close to extinction on the island.
