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.

“ONE OF A KIND”: LIMPKINS ON ABACO

“ONE OF A KIND”: LIMPKINS ON ABACO It’s 07.50 and we are trundling up the one-mile Delphi drive towards the highway in a truck towing the skiff for a day of fishing out on the Marls. We are ‘first boat out’, so the driveway has been peaceful for a while. Suddenly, some way ahead, a […]

BELLA MOTHS: COLOURFUL, POISONOUS & PROMISCUOUS

BELLA MOTHS: COLOURFUL, POISONOUS & PROMISCUOUS Today’s offering is a creature I have never seen before on Abaco, or anywhere else for that matter. We saw it at the Neem Farm when we were looking for birds, butterflies and Spring flowers. I didn’t have moths in mind at all until I saw this one. For […]

“HAPPY EARTH DAY TO YOU”: DO SOMETHING GREEN!

“HAPPY EARTH DAY TO YOU”: DO SOMETHING GREEN! Today is the 46th Earth Day, a global event to encourage ecology and conservation, and to discourage the spoiling of the planet by mankind. What becomes lost now may never be retrieved. Plant a tree. Grow some bee- or butterfly-friendly flowers. Clear a patch of beach of plastic […]

LAUGHING GULLS ON ABACO: NOT SHARING THE JOKE?

LAUGHING GULLS ON ABACO: NOT SHARING THE JOKE? Sandy Point always promises well for birding. There are plenty of ‘good’ birds to see there, depending on the time of year: tropicbirds, frigatebirds, ospreys, brown pelicans, white ibis, cattle egrets, other egrets and herons, kestrels, and a variety of shorebirds. And gulls. We encountered a pair of […]

AMERICAN COOTS feat. “WHAT’S AFOOT?”

AMERICAN COOTS feat. “WHAT’S AFOOT?” The American Coot Fulica americana is similar in many respects to the COMMON GALLINULE (MOORHEN). Except for the beak colour, of course. And as you will see below, the feet. Most people would give an off-the-cuff description of a coot as ‘a black duck with a white beak’. They might […]

“TEACH YOUR CHILDREN WELL”: WHERE CONSERVATION BEGINS

“TEACH YOUR CHILDREN WELL”: WHERE CONSERVATION BEGINS “Catch ’em young”. The perfect plan with children. On Abaco, wonderful work is continually being done with young children on the mainland and on each cay to teach them how precious their environment is, how fragile, and how important it is to take good care of it. The huge enthusiasm […]

BUTTERFLIES ON ABACO (8): WHITE PEACOCK

BUTTERFLIES ON ABACO (8): WHITE PEACOCK The white peacock (Anartia jatrophae) is not a rare butterfly in the northern Bahamas. However, until recently I had never – or never consciously – seen one before. Then we came across a few at the Neem Farm, all very frisky and mostly refusing to settle for more than […]

“WE WANT THE SAME THING”: SANDERLINGS À GO-GO

“WE WANT THE SAME THING”: SANDERLINGS À GO-GO Good grief, this is awful. Suddenly I’m channelling Belinda Carlisle, raucous chanteuse and former lead vokes with the Go-Gos. She has not impinged on my cerebral cortex for, oh, 20 years. And even then, not of my own volition. Yet as soon as I downloaded and checked […]

“FIVE YEARS HARD LABOUR” (NOT!) & A PARROT TO PROVE IT…

“FIVE YEARS HARD LABOUR” (NOT!) AND A PARROT TO PROVE IT I was reading about sea cucumbers online when a small golden Trophy flashed up on my screen, top right. It was mine genial host ‘WordPress’ to remind me that today is the fifth anniversary of this blog. Good grief! Time flies when you are […]
