I think this was my favourite bird to see during our five day stay at the Asa Wright Nature Centre, on the island of Trinidad (off the coast of Venezuela). I had seen photos of them before six friends and I went on this adventure, and I was hoping so muc…

Heliconia, Trinidad
The only times I had ever seen Heliconia plants, before our trip to Trinidad & Tobago in March 2017, was in the Conservatory at the Calgary Zoo. What a thrill it was to see these spectacular plants growing in the wild.

White-necked Jacobin, Asa Wright, Trinidad
The White-necked Jacobins always seemed to pose nicely, so I ended up with more photos of them than of most of the other Hummingbird species that friends and I saw on the islands of Trinidad & Tobago, in March 2017. You can just see a tiny bit of the whi…

Overslept an hour and have to dash out this morning! More later ...

UPDATE about our friend, Mike Kelly, who amazingly survived an horrific vehicle accident, east of the city, in brutal, -30C weather. One of the two wonderful good Samaritans who helped…
