Antigua: Other Creatures

Goats 

Cattle Egret & Goats 

Baby Cow 

Crab 

We went to Antigua mainly to enjoy the turquoise waters.   We found that some goats and cows liked the area as well.   You often find cattle egrets near cattle (and goats). You can't have a Caribbean beach vacation without a crab too.

The Gray Kingbirds were the most common bird we encountered by our villa. We were glad to see them eat some insects. There were a few nests nearby but we may have been a bit too early to see the chicks.

The Antillean Bullfinch eats a variety of plants and seeds in the wild as well as rice, beans and chips in beach bars.

Antigua: Bananaquit

We weren't going to take any bananaquit photos in Antigua because we had taken so many in Grenada this spring. However, this one flew close to us one day and the lighting was just right.
