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.

WONDERS OF THE DEEP: FROM SUBLIME TO… THE OTHER THING

WONDERS OF THE DEEP: FROM SUBLIME TO… THE OTHER THING It’s a statistically proven fact (and not, in any way, a ‘post-truth’ proposition) that no one has ever had a bad thing to say about seahorses. Indeed, some love them too much and consume them – see HERE for threats to seahorse populations in some areas […]

BLACKPOLL WARBLERS ON ABACO: UNCOMMON TRANSIENTS

BLACKPOLL WARBLERS ON ABACO: UNCOMMON TRANSIENTS The Blackpoll Warbler Setophaga striata is a “TR3” on Abaco. Which is to say, the species is classified as an uncommon transient in its migration, and as such it is rarely seen on Abaco. Apart from anything else the window of opportunity of seeing one in the Fall or in Spring is […]

WATCHING NURSE SHARKS: BE PATIENT…

WATCHING NURSE SHARKS: BE PATIENT… I last took a look at nurse sharks nearly 3 years ago HERE. Time to revisit these creatures. Indeed, time for a close-up look. If you want to know more about this fascinating species, just click the link above. The two strange items hanging down from the upper lip are […]

REDDISH EGRET (WHITE MORPH): A FISHY TALE…

REDDISH EGRET (WHITE MORPH): A FISHY TALE… And one with a happy ending! There’s something very satisfying about an expert birder /  photographer’s capture of a perfect sequence, as these fantastic photos show. It not something I’ve ever achieved, not having the skill, the equipment or (probably) the patience required to get a sequence of […]

BAHAMA NUTHATCH: TINY, RARE, A HOP AWAY FROM ABACO…

BAHAMA NUTHATCH: TINY, RARE, A HOP AWAY FROM ABACO… The Bahama Nuthatch (Sitta pusilla insularis) is one of the rarest birds in the Bahamas and – like the similarly rare BAHAMA ORIOLE on Andros – it is confined to one island only, Grand Bahama.  At best about 1000 – 1200 mature birds may inhabit the pine forests though current […]

PIGGYVILLE: HOME OF THE SWIMMING PIGS OF ABACO

PIGGYVILLE: HOME OF THE SWIMMING PIGS OF ABACO No Name Cay has a name. Which is ‘No Name’. Which is a logical paradox.  Since I last wrote about it, the Cay has acquired a new nickname in honour of its only permanent residents: Piggyville. You can find swimming pigs on Exuma, of course – they […]

SANDERLINGS: BATH TIME FUN AT DELPHI, ABACO

SANDERLINGS: BATH TIME FUN AT DELPHI, ABACO One of the pleasures of watching birds (as opposed to BIRDWATCHING, a more committed-sounding enterprise with its own Wiki entry, that may require equipment, books & mag subs…) is to spend some time observing them enjoying themselves. Perhaps you have a feeder, and like to watch the birds […]

CHRISTMAS TREE WORMS: FABULOUSLY FESTIVE

CHRISTMAS TREE WORMS: FABULOUSLY FESTIVE “Deck the Reefs with Worms Like Christmas Trees… Fal-La-La-etc-etc ” is a traditional Carol familiar to all. Well, most. Ok, some, then.

THE COLOUR OF CHRISTMAS: PAINTED BUNTINGS ON ABACO

THE COLOUR OF CHRISTMAS: PAINTED BUNTINGS ON ABACO  It’s a statistical fact that 99% of people “love” or “adore” painted buntings. The 1%  were rather standoffish “Don’t Nose”, preferring to keep their views to themselves. PABU are winter residents on Abaco, not especially common but drawn irresistibly to feeders. To me they are the colour of […]
