Abaco Forum Newsgroup

Latest News From The Abaconian and Rolling Harbour Abaco

Is this an Abaco forum / newsgroup in the conventional sense? Not quite. We tried providing a classic forum at one point, then experimented with Twitter, but had little success. Running an interactive forum requires time, effort, and most of all, moderators -- something we did not have the resources for. If you are looking for a forum / message board dedicated to the Abacos, we suggest heading over to Abaco's Community Message Board or Abaco Forum.

Beyond a classic forum, we provide a stream of some of the news outlets we watch when it comes to Abaco. Our first choice is an Abaco Facebook Page hosted by the Abaconian which has been Abaco's newspaper of record since 1993.

Following the Abaconian's Facebook page is the news feed for Rolling Harbour Abaco hosted by The Delphi Club. This is an informative and enjoyable blog that covers the birds and other wildlife on Abaco Island.

A FROG CALLED TOAD: NEW AMPHIBIAN SPECIES FOR ABACO Welcome to the wonderful world of the tiny Eastern narrow-mouthed toad. This non-native species has just been discovered on Abaco and formally identified. It looks like a toad. It’s called a toad. It’s actually a frog. There’s a song from the ’60s (dread decade) called ‘Walkin’ my […]

MUSCOVY DUCKS: THE MATING GAME…

MUSCOVY DUCKS: THE MATING GAME… This is going to be a bit awkward for me. And for you. We are all going to have to be very adult about this. If you are sensitive about discussing… intimacies, then look away now. Because we are going to have to confront the facts with courage and fortitude. […]

WTF? (WHAT’S THAT FISH) (9): THE HARLEQUIN BASS

WTF? (WHAT’S THAT FISH) (9): THE HARLEQUIN BASS I’m conscious of being rather unfair on this pretty dwarf bass species by including it in the WTF? series. The usual denizen of the series is a fish so strange that one’s immediate instinct is to yell into one’s facemask, “WTF?”. BATFISH or FROGFISH or GUITARFISH and their […]

SMALL CHANGE THAT MAKES A DIFFERENCE: BAHAMAS COINAGE

SMALL CHANGE THAT MAKES A DIFFERENCE: BAHAMAS COINAGE Some time ago I did a series of posts about the lively and colourful wildlife stamps produced by the Bahamas Postal Service and its Philatelic Bureau, with numerous special editions over recent years featuring  birds, reef fish, butterflies, flowers and much more besides. In due course I amalgamated […]

A GALLERY OF GORGEOUS: ABACO BIRDS ON DISPLAY

A GALLERY OF GORGEOUS: ABACO BIRDS ON DISPLAY Occasionally I feature birds photographed elsewhere than on Abaco – GRAND BAHAMA, for example. Almost always they are birds that are recorded for Abaco but are rarely encountered there (and even more rarely photographed). The ROSEATE SPOONBILL, for one. Or they may be birds that have come […]

“AN OSTENTATION OF PEACOCKS”: FERAL BIRDS ON ABACO

“AN OSTENTATION OF PEACOCKS”: FERAL BIRDS ON ABACO A year or so ago I wrote a post entitled SOMETHING COMPLETELY “DIFFERENT (OF ABACO)”, a nod to Monty Python and to Nettica Symonette’s long-defunct fishing lodge on the road to Casuarina that it still proudly signposted on the Highway. You can click the link to see the full […]

“THE ADMIRABLE CHITON” (A DELPHI BEACH MYSTERY)

“THE ADMIRABLE CHITON” (A DELPHI BEACH MYSTERY) The beach at Delphi is good for combing. Most of Abaco’s beaches are too, for that matter. You can find Kasia’s beachcombing page HERE. Last month 2 guests, Linda and Jan, went exploring on the beach and returned with a handful of mystery items they had found under […]
