Bird lists for Les Cayes Haiti

Les Cayes is on Haiti's Southern coast.
UPDATE 13 Nov. 2012 - I haven't been birding regularly on campus.  And I need to update this list.  Notable sighting are an immature yellow-bellied sap-sucker today, and on Nov. 9 these warblers - Black-and-white Warbler (Mniotilta varia), Black-throated Blue Warbler (Dendroica caerulescens) – male, American Redstart (Setophaga ruticilla) – immature male. See this link for a complete list of birds seen around Les Cayes.
