My favorite birding hotspot on the island in the Francis Bay Trail on the north side of the island. The trail starts in some scrub type habitat and proceeds down to a boardwalk through the mangroves and along a small lagoon. The birding is wonderful throughout the trail but you should plan to arrive early for the most activity. You can learn more about this awesome birding hotspot by following this link!
