Go Birding in Martinique's Mountains

The Antillean Crested Hummingbird, or Colibri, is common throughout Martinique and Guadelupe, but that doesn't mean a sighting of this elegant little firecracker is any less rewarding—especially when spotted on a hiking trail on the island's northern stretches. One of the best places to spot them is along the Canal of the Slaves hike, an easy 2.5-mile trek that slips along an irrigation canal built in 1770. Pack a big lens, and walk slowly—these birds spook easily!
