Bermuda is situated 700 miles off the coast of North Carolina, the island itself is approximately 21 miles long. There is about 200 extant endemic species of animals and plants on the island, including the famous Bermuda Petrel. Over 400 species of birds have been recorded in Bermuda over the past 100 years, the majority being from North America, however quite a few are also from Eurasia. Most of these migrant birds arrive here accidentally. Bermuda acts like an oasis in the middle of a desert for lost birds which have been swept off the mainland and pushed out to sea by cold fronts, which makes for some very entertaining birdwatching.
