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.

HERRING GULL STUDIES: EYE CONTACT

HERRING GULL STUDIES: EYE CONTACT Getting close to a herring gull is not a particularly heroic act, and yet… they look quite intimidating. The glint in the eye is somewhat evil. And they can be fairly aggressive when the mood takes them. I once had my scalp raked by a herring gull when I got […]

BLUE CHROMIS: A FLASH OF COLOUR ON THE REEF

BLUE CHROMIS: A FLASH OF COLOUR ON THE REEF I’ve gone pictorial for today because I have only got my phone with me while we are away. Composition is slow, close to decomposition – and the comms connection is close to disconnection Blue chromis (Chromis cyaneus) belong to the same group of fishes as damselfishes. These […]

INTERNATIONAL SHARK WEEK? IT’S SO OVER… EXCEPT HERE

INTERNATIONAL SHARK WEEK? IT’S SO OVER… EXCEPT HERE There’s never a day without a ‘Day’, nor a week without a ‘Week’. Almost all creatures under the sun are celebrated in some regular calendar-based time-frame. With the exception of No-see-ums: I’ve checked – there is no national or international Ceratopogonidae Day in any online calendar.  By […]

GULAR SACS: SCRATCHING THE SURFACE OF AN IN-DEPTH VIEW…

GULAR SACS: SCRATCHING THE SURFACE OF AN IN-DEPTH VIEW… A half-way intelligent microbe would make a better job of getting the internet into our home than the current ISP that nominally serves, at some expense, Maison Harbour. So I am restricted to posting 2 fantastic photos of gular pouches as a tempter for things to […]

BAHAMAS REEF FISH (53): YELLOW GOATFISH

BAHAMAS REEF FISH (53): YELLOW GOATFISH GOATFISHES belong to the mullet family, a large group of species with a flexible membership. In other words, there is disagreement as to whether certain fish are mullet or not. For present purposes, it’s not our problem – no one doubts that the goatfish is a mullet. SO WHY […]

WAVE CHASERS: SANDERLING POOL TIME ON ABACO

WAVE CHASERS: SANDERLING POOL TIME ON ABACO It’s often a hard decision whether to include a short piece of video footage in a post. By short, I mean less than a minute. On the one hand, there is usually a good reason for inclusion, even if only aesthetic. On the other, it simply takes up […]

SPIDER WASPS & TARANTULA HAWKS: STEP AWAY FROM THIS INSECT

SPIDER WASPS  & TARANTULA HAWKS (PEPSIS WASPS) I’ve recently had a flood of online hits for a creature I wrote about several years ago. It’s an aggressive-looking insect that I found in the coppice on South Abaco. I have revisited and revised the original article, with some better images than my own original ones. I could […]

PEACOCK FLOUNDERS REVISITED: NOW YOU SEE THEM…

        PEACOCK FLOUNDERS (Part Deux) MASTERS OF SUBAQUATIC CAMOUFLAGE I featured the extraordinary, colour-transforming PEACOCK FLOUNDER Bothus lunatus about 3 years ago in the Bahamas Reef Fish series (No. 21 I think). These really are remarkable creatures, and I am pleased to be able to show some more wonderful illustrative photos.  ROVING EYES […]
