About the Author:

Craig Layman
My lab’s interdisciplinary pursuits provide for a multi-faceted understanding of environmental change in the coastal realm. We are ecologists, asking questions that span population, community, ecosystem and evolutionary sub-disciplines. We often use a food web based perspective, exploring top-down (e.g., predation) and bottom-up (e.g., nutrient excretion) mechanisms by which animals affect ecosystem processes. All of our efforts are framed within a broader outreach framework, directly integrating science and education, using approaches such as this website.

    I just saw my first flamingo last week flying over the beach at Crossing Rocks. It would be great to see them make a comeback on Abaco.

    Hi Sean, may I add news of your sighting to my post? Maybe it’s the first evidence of a comeback (or maybe it just got lost!). Now that one has actually been seen on Abaco, there are a couple of online resources I’ll check with for any other sightings, perhaps from the Cays… All the best from Rolling Harbour

    Sure, you can add the observation. It was from 9/16 from the beach at Crossing Rocks village. I’ll keep my eyes out for more. And thanks for the great posts on Abaco natural history.
