A week in Antigua

Photos by BarrytheBirder
My wife and I just spent a week in Antigua and while I fully intended to do lots of snorkelling, I also saw some birds - 28 to be exact.   It was no surprise that I saw the ubiquitous Bananaquit more than any other species.   I also got two life birds: a Least Tern and a Black-whiskered Vireo.   They brought my life list to 425.   Following are some pictures and the list of 28 birds.
