  • Bird in Belize's pristine rainforest with our indigenous birder
Description
Bird watching can be enjoyed all year round outside the heat of the day. Belize has well over 500 residential and migratory bird species with 80% being residential. Whether you are an experienced ornithologist or a birding beginner, Belize is a birdwatcher’s paradise.

The thick vegetation of the reserve is home to over 300 species of birds that have been recorded. By many accounts, Cockscomb Basin offers some of the best birding in Belize. Certainly, the most productive times for birding are early morning and late afternoon.

Great Tromp in the Basin
We had a delightful morning with Charles in the Basin. You could tell that birding and guiding was great fun for him as we walked through the Sanctuary listening, looking, observing and learning. We shared excitement with specific sightings and had fun chasing bird songs together. This was a nicely paced and information filled adventure. If we go back, we will definitely be adventuring with him again.
