“Birding with him was pure fun! If you want to see all the Lesser Antillean endemics, go local and choose Birding the Islands. You cannot do better!”

Fun and Successful!

“Every Endemic in the Lesser Antilles was thoroughly enjoyable, worry free, and a great experience. All of us benefited from Ryan’s deep knowledge of birds and life and history of the different islands.

Gunda Narang; New York, USA

“We saw every single endemic - an unforgettable experience”! “An inspirational trip”

Terry Anderson - Kentucky, USA

Ryan, the Bajan Birder, cares about the needs of his clients and knows the islands well, through his repeated visits. We didn’t miss a single endemic. Ryan plans to run tours to other destinations and we are looking forward to joining him.

The Bajan Birder

The Bajan Birder

My name is Ryan Chenery and I’m the Bajan Birder! I was born and raised on Barbados and formed Birding the Islands Ltd in order to offer clients a series of Birding Trips which focus exclusively on the phenomenally bio-diverse and breathtakingly beautiful islands of a region where I’ve birded my whole life - the magical Lesser Antilles.

On these trips I rely on local knowledge amassed over the last 18 years of offering professional bird guiding services to ensure you travel to the very best sites to see the array of wonderful birdlife found in our rich mangroves, vast open grasslands, dynamic coastlines and lush tropical rainforests. I’ll get you close (very close) to stunning and often critically endangered endemics like the Whistling Warbler in St.Vincent, the majestic Imperial Parrot in Dominica, the dazzling Purple-throated Carib and bemusing Gray Trembler on St.Lucia, the flame-breasted Montserrat Oriole on the “emerald isle” of Montserrat and rarest of them all, the gentle, unassuming Grenada Dove, still found serenely walking the pathways in the only area of suitable habitat remaining on the spice isle of Grenada.

Let me show you the many wonders of my home; let me take you to My Caribbean.
