The trip to the Dominican Republic was dedicated to bird watching, I did hardly anything else (except looking at the Colonial Quarter of Santo Domingo). Bird watching was great, I saw a lot of endemic birds. My favorite was the Broad-billed Tody (Todus subulatus, german: Breitschnabeltodi, french: Todier à bec large).
