Rabida Island (San Salvador or James)

The high amount of iron contained in the lava at RĂ¡bida gives it a distinctive red color. White-Cheeked Pintail Ducks live in a salt-water lagoon close to the beach, where brown pelicans and boobies have built their nests. Up until recently, flamingos were also found in the salt-water lagoon, but they have since moved on to other islands, likely due to a lack of food on RĂ¡bida. Nine species of Finches have been reported in this island.
