2003 and 2005
I spent a week in Aruba during the
holidays from December 21 to December 28, 2003. Below is my
complete list during this first visit, I had a second visit
recently but not enough time to get out as my first trip. Not
to worry, as I have married an Aruban I will be returning to
the area for many years to come. In the list below, when relevant
I have noted location and number.
The two photos were taken by my wife, Monique Beaujon, a Rufous-collard
Sparrow taken in Arikok and a Brown-throated Parakeet taken
at home. Both taken on the 2003 trip.
Great Blue Heron: Saveneta
Blue-winged Teal: Bubali
White-cheeked Pintail: Bubali
Osprey: Malmosk Lighthouse
Crested Bobwhite: Arikok
Common Moorehen: Bubali
Ruddy Turnstone: Baby Beach

My recent trip this
holiday season saw little birding, but here is my list from
December 25 to December 31, 2005.
