Saint Vincent and the Grenadines is an island nation in the Lesser Antilles chain of the Caribbean Sea. Its 389-square-kilometre (150 sq mi) territory consists of the main island of Saint Vincent and the northern two-thirds of the Grenadines. The country has a French and British colonial history and is now part of the Commonwealth of Nations and CARICOM.

Saint Vincent and the Grenadines lies between Saint Lucia and Grenada in the Windward Islands of the Lesser Antilles, an island arc of the Caribbean Sea. The islands of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines include the main island of Saint Vincent (344 km2/133 sq mi) and the northern two-thirds of the Grenadines (45 km2/17 sq mi), a chain of small islands stretching south from Saint Vincent to Grenada.

Report

10 islands, 14 days, 14 flights, 8 hotels, 1 visit to the emergency room, drive on the right, drive on the left,...you get the picture. It requires a lot of action and movement to see these birds! And see them we did. It was another successful island-hopping adventure this year, and the logistics worked out fine on this logistically complicated tour.

2006 [02 February] - Laura Gooch

spent a week in St. Vincent between February 13 and February 19, 2006. This was not exclusively a birding trip, and most of my birding was done at the place we were staying, a small valley and cove on the west coast just a bit north of Kingstown called Petit Byahaut (between Kingstown and Buccament). We also made excursions to the Kingstown Botanic Garden and to the Vermont Nature Trails…

2015 [07 July] - Petri Hottola

On the following day, I went out to see the island endemics, St. Vincent Amazon and Whistling Warbler, the two St. Vincent target species for a globetrotting world lister. Additionally, one may be interested to see a St. Vincent (House) Wren, a Grenada Flycatcher and a Lesser Antilles Tanager.
