I’ve been at Asa Wright Nature Center in Trinidad since last Friday night, and I must say that birding in the tropics in February is absolutely a wonderful way to pass the winter!
Asa Wright Nature Center is a restored coffee and cocoa plantation that is now devoted to preserving the birds, plants, and other wildlife of this island country.
The Asa Wright Nature Centre is a nature reserve located in Trinidad and Tobago that is known for its stunning landscapes, diverse wildlife, and unique habitats. If you’re looking for a place to escape into the beauty of nature and connect with the great outdoors, then this is the place for you!
This nature reserve spans over 1,500 acres of lush rainforest, and is home to a wide variety of bird species, including some of the most exotic and colorful birds you’ll ever see! In fact, the Asa Wright Nature Centre is considered one of the top bird-watching destinations in the world, and it’s easy to see why. You can spot birds like the Blue-crowned Motmot, the Violet-crowned Woodnymph, and the Tufted Coquette just to name a few.
In addition to bird-watching, the nature center also offers a variety of other activities and amenities. You can take a guided tour of the grounds and learn about the history of the reserve, or explore the trails on your own and see what you can discover. There’s also a lovely restaurant on the grounds where you can enjoy a delicious meal or a refreshing drink while taking in the views of the lush surroundings.
The Asa Wright Nature Centre is located in the Northern Range of Trinidad and Tobago, and it’s a great place to experience the beauty and diversity of this Caribbean island.
The “Veranda” at this world-renowned nature center looks out over the Arima Valley in the highlands of Trinidad. The veranda is surrounded by landscaping to attract many birds, as well as lots of hummingbird feeders and fruit feeding stations.
Your first morning on the veranda is a wondrous event! As the sun rises and you grab a cup of coffee and a stool at the railing, make sure you’ve got your camera ready because soon you’ll be surrounded by beautiful bird song and some of the most beautiful birds you’ve ever seen!
