Trinidad and Tobago

In June, 2012 we took an eleven-day Tropical Audubon Society trip to Trinidad and Tobago with eight other hardy participants, including our very capable leader, Brian Rapoza. These pictures are from that trip. This was a birding trip and most of the pictures are of birds. There are very few images of people or scenery; this is not a travelogue. The pictures are presented in chronological order.
