Looking for Birds in Cuba With Cate, 2 Bob's, Scott, 2 John's, Mike, Forrest, Cary, Ellen, Sallie, Allie, Alejandro and Rolando

From February 22nd to March 3rd, we traveled to some bird habitats in Cuba. WOW! We covered some ground! Ranging from the lovely white sands of Playa Giron to semi-deciduous forests and the limestone covered hills of Cuevas de las Portales, we saw impressive creatures from in as well as outside the bus. So much to take in.... Now, in no particular order, some of the birds I was lucky enough to see.
