Nucla birders to share Cuba tales

The Bee Hummingbird, considered the world’s smallest bird species, is endemic to parts of Cuba. An adult Bee Hummingbird is 2 inches long and weighs 1.6 to 2 grams. A Lincoln penny weighs 2.6 grams.



Ecuador, Costa Rica, South America, Egnar.

There are birders, and then there are Brenda and Coen Dexter.

With more frequent-flyer miles than a migrating crane, these two birders call Nucla home but wander far from the nest to add to their life lists or simply catch bird species before they disappear.

Their latest journey was to Cuba, seeking several island-endemic species, including the world’s smallest bird.
