Puerto Rican Tody (“San Pedrito”) by Matt Felperin

Discover the wild side of Puerto Rico, a Caribbean destination that you don’t need a passport to visit. In a lively program, naturalist Matt Felperin shares his experience birding on the island­—which despite being about the size of Connecticut, boasts a surprising diversity of habitats, climate, and culture. It’s also home to El Yunque, the United States’ only tropical rainforest in the national forest system.

Felperin surveys the variety of endemic bird species that you can’t see anywhere else, as well as other fascinating flora and fauna such as the iconic coqui frog.­ Along the way, he also touches on the culture and the architecture of Old San Juan. After Felperin’s tempting travelogue, you’ll be ready to pack your bags and begin your own Puerto Rican adventure. ¡Vámonos!
