This Weekend’s STINAPA Birding Event is at Bonaire’s LVV

There’s another opportunity to enjoy a STINAPA birding event at Bonaire’s LVV facility this Saturday, November 19, 2016.

Bonaire has an abundance of shorebirds.During the fall and winter months, Bonaire hosts many migratory birds who visit the island for either over-wintering, or as a resting spot before they continue a longer migration. Many of these special bird species can be found at Bonaire’s LVV wastewater treatment plant, as there is always a fresh water supply for them.

STINAPA will lead another birdwatching trip at LVV.

This Saturday, from 4:30 to 6:00 PM, there is another opportunity for bird watching with STINAPA at this location just off Kaminda Lagoen.  Very rare species of birds for the ABC islands have also been spotted in this area. During just the last weeks, the Southern Lapwing, Northern Waterthrush and the Sora were spotted in the area. During last month’s birding event, about 30 Yellow-billed Cuckoos were spotted.

What to bring.

Bring binoculars (if don’t have binoculars, STINAPA can provide you a pair to use), drinking water, and good walking shoes.

Register your participation.

Please call STINAPA at 717-8444 to make your reservation. There are no costs involved, but donations are always welcome. Meet the leader next to the wastewater tanks.
