The Wahkiakum County Eagle - Established as The Skamokawa Eagle in 1891

Trinidad and Tobago comes to Longview


On Monday, May 20, 2019, Martyn Kenefick will give a presentation on birding in Trinidad and Tobago, the twin-island nation that lies in the Caribbean just north of Venezuela. Willapa Hills Audubon is sponsoring the event.

Kenefick will appear at the Longview Women’s Club, 835 21st avenue, at 7 p.m., May 20. The program is free and open to the public.

Home to 482 species of birds, 68 different bats, 45 snakes, 50 spiders, 30 frogs and toads, 120 dragonflies, 765 butterflies and close to 3,500 moths; the islands are an introduction to the natural history of South America. Get a great taste of tropical birding in Trinidad’s high mountain rain forests, sandy beaches and mangrove swamps, as well as on Tobago’s seabird nesting islands and large protected preserves.

Martyn Kenefick has been an avid birder since his early teens, and moved to Trinidad in 1999. He spent 15 years as a birding tour guide and is an author of the Birds of Trinidad & Tobago Field Guide. He joined the board of the non-profit Asa Wright Nature Centre in 2015 and is now chair of the Conservation & Education Committee.

Non-birders may join Willapa Hills on this tropical adventure.
