Day 1: Chicago to Providenciales

all seasons in one day 78 °F

Happy New Year's Eve! And this concludes the year of 2016 as a fresh start to 2017 lies before us!

Photos to come later since the wifi signal is too weak to upload any photos...

Today, my family and I flew to Providenciales, an island in the northern Caribbean as part of the country of the Turks and Caicos, east of the Bahamas. We will spend a week here and I will post when I can because the wifi here is spotty! A 2016 birding-year-in-review post will come out sometime soon, not sure when...

We had a pleasant and on-time flight courtesy of United, and we arrived onto the island at around 3pm, picked up our rental car, stopped to pick up groceries, and soon were unpacking at the lovely, quaint resort at which we are staying. Here is a NORTHERN MOCKINGBIRD, the first bird I identified on the island, as seen from the airport:

And here is the view from our room:

We ended the evening enjoying the pool and hot tub on premises, serenaded by the calls of COMMON NIGHTHAWKS overhead.

It should be a fun week! Happy birding!
