Heidi's Bermuda Adventure
"Kiskadee, kiskadee" . . . . this was the sound that first welcomed me to Bermuda and that I continued to hear throughout my visit, sometimes when I did not want to (like at 6 am right outside my window!) However, I was delighted when I finally saw the bird from which this sound was emanating. As I explored Bermuda I heard more sounds, including the serenade of the tiny tree frogs, and saw many sights. I was intoxicated by the wildlife of Bermuda.
Welcome to "Heidi's Bermuda Adventure"! I am a teacher at The Madeira School in McLean, VA. I teach Biology and Environmental Science. This summer (1997), I had the opportunity to go to Bermuda for eight days to study the ecology, geology, history, and culture of this series of 180 named islands and islets. Bermuda, a self-governing colony of the United Kingdom, is located in the Atlantic Ocean, approximately 700 miles off the coast of North Carolina, U.S.A. This Web site is designed to give readers a little taste of what I learned in Bermuda. I will focus on environmental issues, particularly the effect of introduced species on native species.
