Virtual Bird Guide

Welcome to the Cayman Islands Virtual Bird Guide!

The Cayman Islands Department of Environment has teamed up with Cornell Lab of Ornithology, Patricia Bradley (author of Birds of the Cayman Islands and Herbert Raffaele (author of Birds of the West Indies, courtesy of the US Fish and Wildlife Winged Ambassadors Program) to bring you a Virtual Guide to the Birds of the Cayman Islands.

The Virtual Bird guide is not intended to replace a real bird guide, however, we hope that it help you to identify some of our local and migratory birds’.

You can search for birds using common names, scientific names, or by browsing the image galleries.

If you would like to know more about birdwatching, contact the National Trust for the Cayman Islands.
