Now living in only four places in the world, the black flycatcher of paradise, known locally as the "black widow", has made La Digue one of its chosen lands, with 160 couples registered on the island. Many of them have their home in the small forest, known as the "Widow's reserve", which stretches along the road leading from the coast to the crossroads for Grand Anse. A reserve founded by the chocolate baron Christopher Cadbury to protect the biotope of this rare bird, which can be seen in the woods. But first stop by the small information booth, where you will be told how this once endangered species was saved. Then it's up to you to keep your eyes open for this zwazo whose male boasts a very long black tail that has earned him the name of widow.
