Michael led his first Cuban Bird Survey starting in 2002 and on Thursday, March 15, 2018 will discuss the importance of Cuba as a vital stopover and wintering ground for birds breeding in Acadia National Park and Maine. Of the 413 species recorded in Cuba, 247 are migratory, with 142, or 36% of total Cuban species, coming mainly from the eastern and midwestern flyway of North America. Michael will report on the first American Pipit found on Cuba (Dec 3 2014, J. Caribbean Ornithology, in press) and other records since working with Caribbean Conservation Trust. A colorful slide presentation!
