...We had a great bird watching trip with a knowledgeable guide. We would not wish to single out of any the staff as they all went out of their way to make sure we had a holiday to remember - and we did! Written by: VanessaStroud
Our Sittee River Bird Watching Tour takes you on a journey along the banks of the Sittee River. Heading out just before daybreak, our knowledgeable guide will help you spot up to 500 of Belize’s most exotic bird species. This tour will keep you on your toes, you’ll be amazed at the diversity. A few examples of the variety of beautiful birds your guide may point out include: keel-billed toucans, green herons, hummingbirds, and parrots. Curious to explore a more focused viewing? Well, check out our Macaw Birding Tour, which offers you the opportunity to watch arguably the most magnificent bird of the parrot family soar above the Mayan Village of Red Bank – the Scarlet Macaw. Though their daring 35 miles per hour speed may keep you engaged, it’s their vibrant and extremely loud cry that commands your attention. What’s so great about our birding tour sites? Both of these diverse habitats are easily accessible and just minutes away from our Belize beach resort.
Are you a novice birdwatcher, not quite ready to commit to a bird watching tour? No worries! We’ve got you covered. In Belize, birds are everywhere! We can’t think of a day that goes by without seeing these feathered beauties on our property, which means you can birdwatch from your very own private balcony. Here’s what Albertabound2014 had to tell the world after her vacation:
The large beautifully built room had a large balcony that had a REAL Ocean view. Bird watching could be done from it. The grounds were beautiful.
Whether you’re birdwatching for recreational or scientific research, there’s no denying that while one can observe birds with the naked eye, the experience is enhanced by using binoculars or even a telescope, so be sure to bring those along!
