Thickets of jungle shroud Trinidad’s Northern Range of mountains. Lying at an altitude of around 370 meters (1,200 feet), the Asa Wright Nature Centre is a renowned bird sanctuary on 607 hectares (1,500 acres) of forested land that about 400 species call home. On guided walks, visitors watch a half-dozen species of hummingbirds (like the tufted coquette) feed. Squirrel cuckoos, purple honeycreepers, tropical mockingbirds, toucans and parrots fly around as well. Bright heliconia plants abound and a waterfall adds to the allure.
