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.

HERMIT CRABS: SHELL-DWELLERS WITH MOBILE HOMES

HERMIT CRABS: SHELL-DWELLERS WITH MOBILE HOMES As everyone knows, Hermit Crabs get their name from the fact that from an early age they borrow empty seashells to live in. As they grow they trade up to a bigger one, leaving their previous home for a smaller crab to move into. It’s a benign** chain of […]

TUNICATES: SESSILE ASEXUAL SEA-SQUIRTS

TUNICATES: SESSILE ASEXUAL SEA-SQUIRTS Painted Tunicates Clavina picta are one of several species of tunicate ‘sea-squirts’ found in Bahamas and Caribbean waters. These creatures with their translucent bodies are usually found clustered together, sometimes in very large groups. One reason for this is that they are ‘sessile’, unable to move from where they have taken […]

The Tyrant

Originally posted on Myr's Bytes:
Happy Draw a Bird Day! To celebrate, I present, my first tyrant flycatcher drawing! The Cuban Pewee, or Crescent-eyed Pewee, Contopus caribaeus, resides in Cuba and The Bahamas, and is occasionally sighted on the southeast coast of Florida. Keith Salvesen recently posted some lovely photos on his blog Rolling…

ABACO WARBLERS: THE FAMOUS 5 (PERMANENT RESIDENTS)

ABACO WARBLERS: THE FAMOUS 5 (PERMANENT RESIDENTS) There are 37 warbler species recorded for Abaco. They fall into three distinct categories. Surprisingly perhaps, only 5 species are permanently resident on Abaco, ie non-migratory. Then there are warblers that commute from the breeding grounds of North America to warmer climes in the Fall, returning in the […]

‘REEF ENCOUNTER’ 1: GRAY ANGELFISH

‘REEF ENCOUNTER’ 1: GRAY ANGELFISH Today I learn from a cheery message from WordPress that my illustrated ramblings have been going on for exactly X years, where X is greater than 5 but less than 10. Time to start a new theme: channelling my inner Noel Coward, I am introducing a new mainly pictorial series […]

NO LAUGHING MATTER: A DISHEVELLED GULL ON ABACO

NO LAUGHING MATTER: A DISHEVELLED GULL ON ABACO By the end of day 2 during my recent stay at Sandy Point, I thought that I had had just about enough of the laughing gulls Leucophaeus atricilla. They are delightful of course, and (in small doses) a joy to listen to. But their incessant outbursts of humour […]

SCENE FROM BELOW: ‘SURFACE TENSION’

SCENE FROM BELOW: ‘SURFACE TENSION’ When I first got a GoPro, I made a mistake. What I really needed was a GoAm. My level of sophistication in Camera-world lines up just above the ‘incompetent’ mark. So, in taking footage of a partial sperm whale skeleton on the sea floor in Abaco last week, I have […]

‘BIRD ON THE WIRE’: LOGGERHEAD KINGBIRD ON ABACO

‘BIRD ON THE WIRE’: LOGGERHEAD KINGBIRD ON ABACO I’m just back from Abaco. Mostly, it was about Marine Mammals (i.e. whales, dolphins, manatees) and the biennial Retreat for the Bahamas Marine Mammal Research Organisation (BMMRO). There was still time for some birding in Sandy Point, though. It’s a good place at any time for bird-watching […]
