2020 E-Book: Top 10 Garden birds on Curaçao
During the lockdown and social isolation many on our island turn to the garden. As a tropical Caribbean island most people have some kind of outdoor space where meeting with local birds can be varied. Of all the 60+ breeding birds recorded on the island, many native ones can be encountered in the garden, especially if offered water and some food. This E-book gives information on the Top 10 native garden birds which can be encountered in the garden on our island. Written and photographed by Michelle Pors- da Costa Gomez for the Curaçao Footprint Foundation, it is available in English, Dutch and Papiamento.
