The St. Vincent Parrot

The St. Vincent Parrot (Amazona guildingii) is a beautiful endemic bird that can be seen at the Botanical Gardens on the outskirts of Kingstown. For those who'd like to observe them in the wild,Vincy Parrot head into St. Vincent’s lush forests. There are an estimated 500 parrots living in the interior of St. Vincent and one of the very best places to see them is at the Vermont Nature Trails.

Dusk and dawn are the prime times to go there, and as you near the Parrot Look-Out on the far side of the nature trail, listen for their call before catching sight of them flying across the forest canopy in front of you.

Other Endemic Species

Another endemic species of bird you may hear in the forest is the whistling warbler (Catharopeza bishopi), a small, black bird that flitters around the undergrowth. Other regionally endemic birds you may encounter at Vermont include the Antillean crested hummingbird, the purple-throated Carib, the Lesser Antillean Tanager, the brown trembler, and the rufous-throated solitaire. But there are many more!

Along our coasts, ponds and mangroves, and hovering high above the inshore waters of the Grenadines, look out for the magnificent frigatebird, the white-tailed tropicbird, terns, egrets, herons and the occasional glossy ibis.

Over 170 species of resident and migratory birds have been recorded in St. Vincent & The Grenadines, making our islands an interesting and beautiful destination for professional ornithologists and amateur birders.
