Birdwatching

Birdwatching

Bird watching is also popular and available year-round. In Trinidad, avid birders have choices at Asa Wright Nature Centre and the Pointe-a-Pierre Wildfowl Trust. Asa Wright is nestled in the mountains of the Northern Range and is famous for its diverse number of flora, multiple hummingbirds and other bird species. The Wildfowl Trust on the other hand, is a wetland habitat within a major petrochemical and oil refining complex, (State-company Petrotrin).

Birds, ducks, scarlet ibises and gallinules all live in harmony in this environment.

Also on your must-see list should be the Pax Guest House located on the slopes of the Northern Range, in St Augustine, which provides a good opportunity to see over a hundred bird species and flora in abundance. While there, you should take advantage of visiting Mt. St. Benedict, the largest Benedictine Monastery in the Caribbean that’s been around since 1913.
