Myiarchus swainsoni

Three new species for Aruba, with notes on other significant sightings

A visit to Aruba during April 2013 yielded three species previously unrecorded there: Least Bittern (Ixobrychus exilis), Swainson’s Flycatcher (Myiarchus swainsoni), and Veery (Catharus fuscescens). Seven other species with fewer than five an- tecedent records from the island were detected plus another not seen since 1980. All documentation and photographs are on file at the University of Amsterdam, Department of Zoology.
