Birds of Reunion Island Photo Essay

Spread the love

When most people hear of Reunion Island – the instinctive question is where is this country? To be honest it was mine too when I was invited a couple of years ago. Close to Mauritius (30 minute flight away), this is a tropical island that is a French Department. So the official language here is French and currency is Euro! The beautiful country is home to many wonderful sights including vanilla plantations and turtle conservation. And some of the most delightfully exquisite hotels too. However for me the highlight was the numerous birds I spotted when I was here for about five days. Here are some of those stunning beauties.
