Walk or Drive to the Birds

There is a “Walking Bird” and a “Driving Bird” tour on Grand Turk with clearly marked trail signs and lots of birds to show you the way in this “first in the Caribbean”  tour.

Flamingo’s  and an Osprey on the remnants of a windmill are just a few of the birding possibilities  in Town Salina.  Black Necked Stilt five day old chicks can be seen wading in the Great Salina and ducks aplenty are  at South Wells, with Egrets, Pelicans and Herons at North Creek.

These salt ponds are home to a unique variety of birds and, because of the location of the ponds, water birds regularly approach people more closely than almost anywhere else in the world.

The trails are a joint effort of the Museum and the the UK Overseas Territories Conservation Forum (UKOTCF) and were supported by a grant from the Carnival/TCInvest/TCIGovernment Infrastructure Fund.
