CARIBBEAN BIRDS SERIOUSLY IMPACTED BY *DORIAN*

According to a report from BirdsCaribbean, *Hurricane Dorian* seriously
impacted and devastated the northern Bahama Islands. The category 5 storm
battered the Abaco Islands and Grand Bahama Island for more than two days
with 185 to 220 mph winds, and included a storm surge in excess of 23 feet.
The damage to communities, lives, and habitats is unprecedented and
heartbreaking. Also, among the endemic species particularly impacted were
Bahama Parrot, Bahama Swallow, Bahama Warbler, and Bahama Nuthatch.

Readers interested in obtaining more information about this event and how
they can help should visit BirdsCaribbean here:
