Ubiquitous, approachable Rock Pigeon is the most familiar representative of the Columbidae family. One of the most beautiful is the endangered Blue-headed Quail-Dove, endemic to Cuba. It has long been considered unique, and is the only member of the genus Starnoenas, but new research suggests that it is far more unusual than previously believed.
BirdWatching magazine, in collaboration with Caribbean Conservation Trust, Inc. (CCT) is promoting an exclusive U.S.-led and U.S.-managed birding program to Cuba! The program is coordinated under U.S. government authorization by Connecticut-based CCT. CCT staff have a 20-year history of managing bird-conservation programs in Cuba.
