Water Birds Around the island’s lakes and lagoons and along the coast (especially the offshore islands, river deltas, and mangrove swamps), you’ll find common but picturesque shorebirds such as flamingos, blue herons, great egrets, American frigate birds, brown pelicans, and glossy ibis. Mountain Birds In the mountains, you might spot white-necked crows, green-tailed warblers, Antillean siskins, and hummingbirds.

An exception can be the north (Atlantic) coast in winter, when cooler air and winds sometimes move in from the north.

All sea turtle species are threatened, however, by hunters, who kill them for their shells, hides, and oil, as well as for their meat and eggs. The largest sea turtles have already been hunted out.
