Day 1,2,3 Pelican Beach Resort
Upon arrival we’ll drive south to Pelican Beach with birding stops along the way.
On one day we will enjoy birding the many trails in the broad-leaf forest of the Cockscomb Basin Jaguar Preserve. Toucans, woodpeckers, guans and tanagers abound here!
A boat trip to the cayes will allow us to see frigatebirds, boobies, pelicans and other sea birds. We’ll enjoy lunch on a tropical island, too! We will be on the second longest barrier reef in the world, so snorkeling is fantastic! So many fish offer a plethora of color under the sea. Snorkeling is optional, so if you prefer, you can bird more along the island’s shore or just take a nap in one of the hammocks!
Day 4,5,6 Tranquility Lodge
The Mayan ruins of Lubaantun are less visited and the surrounding forest is full of birds! We will look for birds not seen in northern Belize, like Russet Antshrike and Band-tailed Barbthroat.
A boat trip along the Moho River will offer more species found along the water’s edge, including up to five different kingfishers, Black-collared Hawks and
Day 7 BLACK ORCHID
Driving north again, we will make some great birding stops on our way to our final night’s lodging. Blue Hole National Park is a great place for tanagers, warblers and hermits, as well as a quick dip in the cool water of the Blue Hole... a collapsed cave.
Our final night will be spend along the Belize River where the birding will continue until dark (and maybe after)!
