The world-renowned ornithologist Bertrand Jno Baptiste—better known as "Dr Birdy"—leads rain forest rambles, ranging from three hours (US$120) to intensive all-day hikes (US$220). His enthusiasm captivates even those not into bird-watching, as he shows off broad-winged hawks, plumbeous warblers, rufous-throated solitaires, red-legged thrushes, and rare blue-headed hummingbirds. Visitors also stand a good chance of seeing Dominica's two endemic parrot species: the red-necked Amazon ("jaco") and the imperial Amazon ("sisserou," which stars on the country's flag). Book directly via (767) 245-4768 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
