    ....Vermont Nature Trails - These trails begin near the top of the 
      Buccament Valley. There are two main trails which lead through tropical rain forest, where there is a chance of seeing the St. Vincent Parrot and the Whistling Warbler, both unique to St. Vincent and strictly protected internationally.

    ....Scenes from a Lesser Antilles Trip - 18-28 March 2000. A photo
      montage by Don Roberson. These shots are from a fine "Focus on Nature" tour of the Lesser Antillean islands of St. Lucia, St. Vincent, and Dominica (a trip led by Armas Hill), with a final day on Puerto Rico (a trip led by B. J. Rose and with a different set of participants). In the islands of the Lesser Antilles, we were successful in locating all island and regional endemics within a week. 
    ....Trip Report: St. Vincent & The Grenadines - May 1998. By Bill Smith.
      We had wanted to make a trip through the southern Lesser Antilles for some time, but circumstance had foiled our intentions until the spring of 1998.  Our focus was on the Grenadines. We previously had visited St. Vincent itself in 1988.
    ....Trip Report: Lesser Antilles - St. Lucia, Dominica and St. Vincent
      5 - 14 December 2000. By Barry Cooper and Gail Mackiernan. For birders who wish to see all the Caribbean endemics and specialties, a trip to the Lesser Antilles is a must. Some of the regionís most spectacular birds are found on these small islands, as well as some of the most undisturbed habitat.
    ....Trip Report: Lesser Antilles - 3-13 November 1999. By Frank Frazier. 
      Thought it might be of interest to give a brief report of the highlights of a trip I took with my N.J. friend Bill Weiss, to some principal islands of the Lesser Antilles in hopes of seeing their endemics and specialties - we visited Guadeloupe, Dominica, Martinique, St. Lucia, and St. Vincent, ending up with one night and morning in Puerto Rico.
