Island Expeditions: Birding in Belize

Beautiful Belize boasts some of the best birding in the Americas.

Supporting over 540 species of Birds recorded, but over 20% migratory visitors, escaping winter in Northern climates. Although there is great birding virtually anywhere in Belize, most people interested in viewing as many species as possible head inland to the rainforests, and waterways of the country. Probably the most popular spot for birding is the Crooked Tree Wildlife Sanctuary, in northern Belize, whose lagoons and swamps support a huge variety of birds that become more and more concentrated during the dry-season, including the Jabiru Stork - the largest bird in the Americas.
