Saint Lucia & Martinique
I’m back from a two-week trip to Saint Lucia and Martinique. Got to see all local bats and melon-headed whales, and also to snorkel with sperm whales and Fraser’s dolphins for $40. I’m hoping to visit the Lesser Antilles again in a few months, so it will be a while until I send Jon my trip report, but if you are planning to go there this year, please let me know and I’ll send you the draft.
BTW, if anyone would be interested in joining me next time, please let me know (just express your general interest, since I don’t have any details yet). It will most likely be some or all of the following: Montserrat, Guadeloupe, Dominica, St. Vincent and Grenada; we’ll do it in blitz mode and try to get all endemic mammals and birds, do some cetacean watching, and find a few herps, too.

That’s cool, V. What outfit took you out for the cetaceans?
FWIW, Bahamas Hutias are plentiful on East Plana Cay in the lower Bahamas. Not easy to get to, though. They have been introduced onto other Cays but I couldn’t find any good place to try.
Good luck with the blitz. I’ve birded several islands this year off of cheap cruise trips and found the logistics of getting around independently somewhat daunting.
