Part of the excitement of birding other countries is going in search of the extremely rare species. In this case, the Zapata wren is only found one one place in the world and that is the Zapata Swamp on the southern side of Cuba. Our guide Adrian took us by pole boat to a location in the swamp where they can be found. The bird was only revealed to science in 1926 and was named for one of its discoverers, Fermin Cervera. It is now considered endangered due to introduced predator species and drainage for agriculture.
