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.

BOTTLENOSE DOLPHINS IN ABACO WATERS (PART 1)

BOTTLENOSE DOLPHINS IN ABACO WATERS (PART 1) This seems to be a excellent early Spring for dolphin and whale sightings in Abaco waters. I’ve noticed that people have been posting dolphin sightings on FB recently. In our brief window of opportunity each March, I usually reckon to see 2 or 3 dolphins at most – […]

UNDENIABLY NATTY: BLUE-GRAY GNATCATCHERS ON ABACO

UNDENIABLY NATTY: BLUE-GRAY GNATCATCHERS ON ABACO As I sort through 11,867* recent photographs from Abaco and dump the 99% of them that fall into any of the ‘epic fail’, ‘hopeless’, ‘what on earth?’, ‘why on earth’?, ‘sun-flared’, ‘pitch black’, and ‘bird-butt’ categories, a few are making it through the rigorous editorial process. There will be […]

ABACO DAWN: WHERE NATURE MEETS ART…

DELPHI DAWN: WHERE NATURE MEETS ART… There’s a moment when certain photos suddenly look as if they are paintings. This may be especially true of skyscapes or seascapes – or both together. Here are some recent daybreak views from Abaco which could as easily have been painted from a bright palette. And in case you […]

GRAY ANGELFISH: BAHAMAS REEF FISH (24)

GRAY ANGELFISH: BAHAMAS REEF FISH (24) I have posted about Gray Angelfish before, illustrated with some of Melinda’s wonderful undersea photographs. I’m putting up some more of Melinda’s photos of Gray Angelfish drifting around their coral reef habitat. These photos are particularly interesting in demonstrating the diversity and health of the reefs of the Northern […]

THE OCTOPUS: THERE’S NOTHING QUITE LIKE IT…

THE OCTOPUS: THERE’S NOTHING QUITE LIKE IT… I’ve posted about the octopus a couple of times before. The first time was to explore the correct plural of the word ‘and related cephalopod mysteries’. You can see that HERE. More recently there was ‘Marine Bagpipes filled with Ink’, which you can see HERE. Both posts were […]

ABACO’S OWN ‘AERO-DRONE': GREAT AERIAL SHOTS BY ‘MR REES’

ABACO’S OWN ‘AERO-DRONE': GREAT AERIAL SHOTS BY ‘MR REES’ David Rees is well known for his excellent photography, not least because of his early adoption of a drone – a serious bit of  kit, not a toy ‘copter + camera – for capturing some wonderful aerial views of Abaco. Photos from the air can give […]

THE SWIMMING PIGS OF ABACO (THEY CAN’T FLY YET…)

THE SWIMMING PIGS OF ABACO (THEY CAN’T FLY YET…) Many or most people with a Bahamian interest are familiar with the swimming feral pigs of the Exumas. They deservedly receive quite a lot of publicity, being (a) demonstrably porcine yet (b) inherently *adorbz* and (c) keen swimmers. A better kept secret is that there are swimming […]
