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.

MELLOW YELLOW: HOODED WARBLERS ON ABACO

MELLOW YELLOW: HOODED WARBLERS ON ABACO The Hooded Warbler (Setophaga citrina) breeds in eastern North America in summer, and winters in Central America and the West Indies. On Abaco they are classed as WR3, ‘uncommon winter residents’. The range map below reveals one strange aspect of their habitat. It looks as though they choose not to live […]

HAMMERHEAD SHARKS: UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL…

HAMMERHEAD SHARKS: UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL… Of all the words that have been devalued and diminished by overuse over the last decade, ‘AWESOME!!!’ must rank high in the top 10. Maybe it’s even made it to number 1. Awesome! Even in the wildest reaches of hyperbole, the offer of a Kalik can never truly be […]

MAPPING ABACO: A JOURNEY BACK TO THE c18

MAPPING ABACO: A JOURNEY BACK TO THE c18 From time to time I come across historic maps of the Bahamas in general and Abaco in particular. Many were included in a post I wrote some time ago about the maritime and geographic importance of Hole-in-the-Wall, HERE. Almost all pre-c20 maps of the Bahamas contain insights […]

THINK PINK: A RUNCIBLE OF SPOONBILLS

THINK PINK: A RUNCIBLE OF SPOONBILLS Healthy happy hungry birds ‘in the pink’. Always a pleasure to see. And when there is a group of them, how often one reaches for the correct collective noun: a murder of crows, an exultation of larks, a murmuration of starlings, a parliament of owls and so forth. Many […]

PLOVER APPRECIATION DAY 2016

PLOVER APPRECIATION DAY  2016 Today’s the day that plovers appreciate the humans who enjoy them and look after them. Or maybe they have become more valuable than ever (I hope I have understood this right). I’m stuck at an airport right now waiting on a delayed flight, after our original flight had already postponed by […]

SEABIRDS, SHOREBIRDS & WADERS: 30 WAYS TO DISTINGUISH THEM

SEABIRDS, SHOREBIRDS & WADERS: 30 WAYS TO DISTINGUISH THEM  While putting together “The Birds of Abaco” I looked at and archived hundreds of photos of birds, many with aquatic or semi-aquatic lives. These can be broadly categorised as seabirds, shorebirds or wading birds. But with some bird breeds, there can be doubt as to which […]

UNDERWATER ANGELS: ANGELFISH

UNDERWATER ANGELS: ANGELFISH We are away for a few days, so I have planned a few posts that won’t fall apart courtesy of being done on a phone. Hopefully. Angelfish are fabulous and come in various ‘colorways’, as designers say. Queens are my favourite, with grays not far behind. The third type here, the French, […]

INTERNATIONAL MANATEE DAY SEPT 7

How could I have forgotten? Here we are, just arrived in south-west France, hemmed in by mountains, sea and Spain. Blissful. Yet there are more important things than mere vacations. Manatees are high on the list of priorities. So to celebrate their special day, as the bats flitter above our glasses of Mas Rous, here’s an […]

WTF? (WHAT’S THAT FISH?) 11: STARGAZER FISH

WTF? (WHAT’S THAT FISH?) 11: STARGAZER FISH It’s a real shocker! This fish is a serious contender. An A-list horror-fish. The WTF? series has featured some extraordinary, bizarre and frankly unbelievable fish species. Here’s one that might just blow them all out of the water. So to speak. Not only is this fish weird in […]

WORLD SHOREBIRDS DAY? YAY! AN ABACO COMPETITION!

WORLD SHOREBIRDS DAY? YAY! AN ABACO COMPETITION! In the past I have occasionally offered a Kalik™ (half in jest) for a ‘right answer’ or a nugget of info. Anyone who didn’t get their beer can still claim it, of course [no, no, not all at once please…]. But now I’m getting serious. World Shorebird day […]
