Blue Crowned Motmot - There are more than 500 species of birds that live in Belize year round or visit Belize as part of their migration. Belize is excellent for birding because of its rich diversity of ecosystems containing forests, rivers, savanna and jungle.
Trips along the New River are great for seeing waterfowl, such as herons, kingfishers and jabiru storks. You may want to explore the natural waterways by canoe or kayak. It is a great way to enjoy bird watching and the flora and fauna.
