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.

SNOWY EGRETS & ENVIABLE FISHING SUCCESS

SNOWY EGRETS & ENVIABLE FISHING SUCCESSES This snowy egret is not (as it might appear) practising its ballet moves. It is on a mission. You can see the egret’s hunting trail, leaving a gentle but purposeful wake as it stalks through the water. Now it is poised for its next move… getting lunch. The head […]

THE ‘ABACO’ PARROTS OF NASSAU REVISITED

THE ‘ABACO’ PARROTS OF NASSAU REVISITED A while back I wrote a post about the mysterious population of Cuban parrots in Nassau. The mysteries being, how and when did they get there; and how and especially why is the population slowly increasing when there is scant evidence of nests, fledglings or juveniles; and no equivalent […]

You’ll see a wide variety of soft and hard corals in the images below (prize** for the full list). If these superb photos don’t want to make you want […]

SANDERLINGS ON ABACO: GOTTA LOVE ‘EM

SANDERLINGS ON ABACO: GOTTA LOVE ‘EM Sanderlings. Wind them up with the concealed key under their left wing, and they will charge up and down the beach for an hour or two, pausing only to rip some small unsuspecting mollusk or crustacean from its sandy bed. These birds are tiny. And smart. They know all […]

SCOOP! BLACK SKIMMERS FOUND ON ABACO

SCOOP! BLACK SKIMMERS FOUND ON ABACO I have been waiting soooooo long for photos of black skimmers (Rynchops niger) taken on Abaco. When we were putting together “The Birds of Abaco”, I had just one skimmer image – a bird standing self-consciously on a jetty facing the camera, a shot into difficult light with a low-res […]

A-PIPIN’ & A-PLOVIN’ ON ABACO: PIPL POWER Last year someone kindly reported a lone piping plover sighting on ABACO PIPING PLOVER WATCH.

STARK’S “HISTORY OF & GUIDE TO THE BAHAMAS”

STARK’S “HISTORY OF & GUIDE TO THE BAHAMAS” James H. Stark appears to have been, for his time, a veritable Rough Guide for the Caribbean. In 1891 he produced an entrancing tome, the commendably grammatically correctly-titled “Stark’s History of and Guide to the Bahama Islands Containing a Description of Everything on or About the Bahama Islands […]
