This video is called Birding in the San Diego, Cuba area. Delaware Nature Society Bird Survey Trip, 2010.
As we woke up, four Cuban martins sitting on a TV antenna.
After our journey began, an eastern meadowlark, a North American migrant bird, on a meadow.
A cattle egret. A peregrine falcon flying.
We went to the La Güira National Park, near San Diego.
At the entrance, trees with orange flowers, attracting several blackish bird species.
We continue to the Cuevas de los Portales; caves near a river valley. A Cuban solitaire sings. In 1962, Che Guevara lived in these caves. The Cuban government feared that after the 1961 Playa Giron invasion, there would come another United States military incursion: not this time of a relatively small force of CIA mercenaries as in 1961, but of ten thousands of regular United States soldiers in that Cuban missile crisis year. If that would happen, Che intended to wage guerilla against the invasion forces from the Cuevas de los Portales.
Two great lizard cuckoos in a tree.
In another tree, the Cuban national bird: a Cuban trogon.
A Cuban emerald hummingbird.
Cattle egrets near cattle.
Finally, we arrive in Santa Clara city.
