Get to know our feathered friends.

Birding

Over 500 species of feathered friends call Belize home from time to time. Some of the best places to see migrant and resident water birds are Crooked Tree and the seashores of Belize.

Like everything else here, you can easily watch birds while doing something else. Going on a zip-lining trip? You may see a toucan. Cruising the Hummingbird Highway to San Ignacio? Pull over and check out a few birds. In the Cockscomb Basin Forest Reserve? So are birds.

If you want someone to show you birds, our resorts and tour operators offer birding trips that will show you all the birding hot spots. So, no matter if you just want to check out a few exotic birds or you’re a full-blown “twitcher,” here, all you really have to do is look up.
