Overview 

Punta Cana: Bird Watching at Punta Cana Foundation Area 

Quisqueya “Dominican Republic & Haiti” is an island  with a highly diverse avifauna of more than 300 species. In addition to 32 endemic bird species, the country hosts an impressive assemblage of permanent resident species, overwintering migrants, and other transient species that stop to rest and refuel enroute to more southerly wintering or northern breeding areas. The island of Hispaniola’s high level of endemism and its contribution to global biodiversity have earned it the highest ranking of biological importance in a worldwide assessment of bird protection priorities.  During this experience we will get to oversee Punta Cana, and the foundation where some of the main projects of bird’s conversation began.  

Punta Cana Área   

This area, probably the most well-known resort area in the country, is at the easternmost tip of the country. The habitat of this area comprises mostly lowland moist forests, coastal shrub-land, pastureland and urban areas, as well as mangroves, lagoons, and beaches. Punta Cana is the most highly visited Caribbean destination resort. Nevertheless, over 90 different species of birds have been identified in Punta Cana during the winter migration season, and opportunities to learn and appreciate many of Hispaniola’s interesting bird species are available in the area. 

Our target species for Punta Cana include many species endemic to the island or to the Caribbean region, such as Hispaniolan Parrot, Hispaniolan Lizard-Cuckoo

Punta Cana Foundation  

There are a variety of good birding areas at Puntacana Resort and Club that are centered on the Puntacana Ecological Foundation. Behind the Center for Sustainability are a system of short trails that wind through a variety of gardens, tropical fruit orchards, and scrub forest. A longer, more developed trail is known as the Indian Eyes Trail. Access to this circular trail is made through the hotel which is across the street from the Ecological Foundation.
