Birding with Charmaine: Vireos and Orioles

The Thick-billed Vireos is prevalent in Abaco. The Black-whiskered Vireo, the Yellow throated Vireo and the White-eyed Vireo are greater in number on Man-O-War this season compared to the past few seasons. A Red-eyed Vireo sighting was recorded as well.

Baltimore Orioles have been enjoying the sugar feeders since October. They seem to have a routine dinner plan, appearing daily, around the same time for their feeding.

We were very excited to have an Orchard Oriole visiting a private preserve this month!

Message from South Abaco MP: June 15, 2017

As I have stated before and will continue to say, our local government officials and members have proved to be among the most dedicated and effective in The Commonwealth. I look forward to building an effective and amicable working relationship with the new and returning local government members and councillors.
