Tour Description 

St Lucia is home to several endemic species and some of the region’s most intriguing bird-life from the tropical hummingbird to migratory kestrel; the La Sorciere forest reserve is a favoured environment for many of them. The bird watching hike is designed to engage everyone from the serious birder to the casual enthusiast.

The tour sets off just after sunrise to ensure the best sightings. Experienced Nature Interpreters guide you through the forest pointing out signature calls and keeping eyes peeled for even the most elusive of birds. The Amazona Versicolor, St Lucia’s national symbol makes this forest its home, though it is notoriously bashful. In flight, there is nothing more magnificent than the St Lucia Oriole, with its yellow/orange markings especially dramatic against its black plumage. In no short supply are three varieties of hummingbird, the Banana Quit, and the Pewee, all of which animate the forest canopy. The hike is moderate in difficulty, the ascent is gradual and there are rest points along the way.
