Little by little the bird builds it's nest.
Discovered by Columbus in 1492, Haiti, Land of Mountains, is located on the island of Hispaniola which it shares with the Dominican Republic. During it’s long European colonization, Haiti was considered the richest colony of the French empire. Today, this Caribbean nation hosts a population of nearly 11 million people and is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. Years of devastating deforestation, political unrest, and natural disasters have ravaged this once vibrant land.
