A flock of Purple Martins and an Empidonax Flycatcher were only two of the exciting bird species observed during the first-of-the-season South Abaco birdwatching outing. They were among an impressive number of species sighted that day.

Some birds spotted in the Treasure Cay area and on the way to Marsh Harbour by veteran ornithologist, Dr. Elwood Bracey, were also included in the count. All together over seventy five species of birds were sighted by a team of eleven people who met at the office of the Bahamas National Trust in Marsh Harbour at 7:00 am in the morning of September 20.
