St. John Wildlife

White-cheeked pintail ducks
We had some good terrestrial wildlife sightings on St. John: white-tailed deer, lizards, birds, and even mongoose (which were imported long ago to deal with the rats eating the sugar cane, but which since have been eating other things like bird eggs, turtle eggs, snakes…don’t get me going on the downfalls of importing one pest to take care of another).  Anyway, here are some of the critters.
