Another Iteration of the Trinity

10,000 Birds

In the southeastern end of Trinidad, the Trinity Hills rises above the mostly flat interior of the island. This trio of hills stood out to a certain lost seaman over 500 years ago – who took it as a sign of the Holy Trinity and therefore coined the name La Isla de la Trinidad.

My Pilgrimage

10,000 Birds

Twice a year, in February and July, I make a pilgrimage to the Hot Country ( Tierra Caliente ) thorn forest zone around Paso Ancho, Michoacán. Of course, I also go there several other times each year; I have, after all, seen 160 species at this endemic-rich site.
