Grand Cayman’s birds suffered very badly as a result of Hurricane Ivan (Sept.11-12, 2004) & its aftermath, when there was little food or shelter. The preservation & re-planting of Cayman’s indigenous (& a few that have become naturalized & grow in the wild) trees & shrubs, in clusters, rather than singly, will create a network of mini-woodlands to aid the re-establishment of bird populations. Listed are different species that provide suitable roosts & nesting sites & a year-round supply of fruits for BIRDS.

Fiddlewood – Petitia domingensis fruits,
Family: VERBENACEAE.
Endangered. Dec.8, 2006.
Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac, Bahamas and Greater Antilles.
