When one thinks of Cuba, one thinks of the Fidel Castro, the Bay of Pigs, missiles, Kennedy, communism, politics and refugees. But this island, only 90 miles off the coast of Florida, has a rich natural history, with passionate local naturalists and birders who care deeply about the island and its unique flora and fauna. Cuba boasts 26 endemic bird species and is an important migratory stop over. Traveling to Cuba under a U.S. Department of Treasury humanitarian license to census birds, Hugh Simmons and his fellow travelers experienced a relatively unfiltered view of life in Cuba. (Birders do not tend to stay on the main roads.) Through photographs, this presentation will give the audience a glimpse at Cuba's unique birds and the fascinating history and culture of the land they call home.
