BIRDS OF ISLA FUERTE AND TORTUGUILLA, TWO ISLANDS ON THE CONTINENTAL SHELF OF THE COLOMBIAN CARIBBEAN

Felipe A. Estela

Abstract


Bird observations were made during five days between 2004 and 2006 on Isla Fuerte and Isla Tortuguilla, two continental shelf islands of the Colombian Caribbean coast. On both sites 83 species were recorded. Isla Fuerte is larger and has a more complex array of habitats, supporting a larger and more complete bird community. Noteworthy species and aspects on the conservation of these insular environments are discussed.
