Travel Forums Central/South America & The Caribbean Any birders on my cruise?

I will be sailing the Royal Caribbean "Vision of the Seas" from Colon, Panama from November 16-23. Ports of call are Cartagena, Bonaire, Aruba, & Curacao.

I will have a balcony and plan to do some shipboard birding, and am also searching for possible birding guides in Cartagena and on Bonaire in particular.

At the same time, I would like to see if there are any other knowledgeable birders who might want to join forces if the guides fall through? I mean people who have done enough birding to have at least 500-1000 species on their lists?

I am a very good birder in the USA and I have done well in Peru and Costa Rica, but I am primarily an auditory birder and I obviously can't memorize the calls of every bird in the Caribbean in addition to the 400 or so species I know already!

So if anyone knows their birds and might be on this cruise - let me know! We should talk!
