   The Bahamas is full of interesting animals and plants.  This page contains most of the Land Animals I have seen here.  I am still working on getting some of the pictures.  The pictures on this page are ones that me and my dad took. 

        Birds  -  Snakes  -  Lizards

  Birds

   Banaquit  -  These aren't very common around our house because were so close to the beach.  Inland these birds are very common.

  Bahama Mockingbird  -  Are noisy and unpleasant birds.  They scare away all of the other birds except for
  the Osprey.

  Antillean Bullfinch  -  They are about the size of a sparrow.

                          
                          

     Smooth billed Ani  -  Smooth billed Anis' look like a crow except for their beak which is parrot like.  They
    usually live in a group of four.  They takes turns being the look out of the group.  The look out sits high up
    in a tree looking for danger, while the rest stay down out of sight.      

                                     

   Great blue heron  -  These birds are found wading in the near by salt pond.  The birds we see stand
