Laguna Guanaroca, Cuba: Birdwatching at its Best in Cienfuegos

The soft morning light was perfect, the lagoon still and quiet, and the calmness enveloped me, the only sounds those of the occasional bird calling and the oars gently splashing in the water. As we got nearer, the flamingoes started to move. In perfect sync they all put their heads in the air and started walking in the same direction, an army of long pink necks marching away from us.
