Bonaire boasts of an amazing number of birds, and in the last months of the year, the number of species grows, as Bonaire is an important stopping off, or wintering, area for many migratory birds.

STINAPA Connecting People with Nature Birdwatching Event.

STINAPA is once again hosting another special birdwatching event on Saturday, October 22, 2016 from 4:30 to 6:00 PM at the LVV facility just off of Kaminda Lagoen.

The Venue.

This area has a constant supply of fresh water which attracts an abundance of bird species. Very rare species of birds for the ABC islands have also been spotted in this area. During the last weeks, the Black-bellied Whistling Duck was seen in this area.

What to Bring.

Bring binoculars (if you do not have any, STINAPA can provide a pair to use), drinking water, and good walking shoes.

Make your reservation.

Please call 717-8444  to make your reservation. There are no costs involved, but donations are always welcome. The meeting point is at the office building next to the wastewater tanks.
