STINAPA’s Ebird Global Big Day Big 2016 Was Fun

STINAPA Staff And Participants Found 69 Different Species Of Birds Last Saturday May 14th, On Ebird Global Big Day 2016.

KRALENDIJK (STINAPA) -- eBird’s Global Big Day (last Saturday) was loads of fun!

The goals of the event: finding as many different bird species in Bonaire as possible throughout the day AND getting people out and enjoying nature. Bird enthusiasts (including both kids and adults) and STINAPA staff met at 8 am at Tului Domacasse  park by the waterfront and went in search of birds at several locations including the outskirts of Lac Bay, Cargill, Gotomeer and the wastewater treatment facility at LVV. We returned by 10 am with our lists, but some of us kept looking for birds throughout the day.

In total, we found 69 different species of birds on our lovely island! Great job everyone!
