This small island lying north of Great Exuma has a research center, an airstrip and is partially habitated.
Its proximity to Great Exuma is reflected in the presence of some resident landbirds such as Smooth-billed Ani, Mangrove Cuckoo, Burrowing Owl, Greater Antillean Pewee and Hairy Woodpecker. Common residents are White-crowned Pigeons, Zenaida Doves, Bahama Mockingbirds, Thick-billed Vireos, Greater Antillian Bullfinches and Bananaquits. There are two small ponds at the north end of the runway where Least Grebes, White-cheeked Pintails and West Indian Whistling Ducks have been seen. Wilson's Plovers, Antillean Nighthawks and Grey Kingbirds are common summer residents.
