We saw birds wherever we went.
We saw these at the Belize Zoo and at Tikal.
We photographed these birds from a boat on the Mopan River.
This bird is in breeding plumage. Note the long feathers on the back. This bird was at the Belize Zoo.
This toucan was watching us when we were at Tikal.
This beautiful bird was in the Belize Zoo.
We photographed this bird at the Mopan River Resort.
There were many of these colorful turkeys running around in Tikal.
These were nesting on Half Moon Caye.
The birds in the first photo are mostly great egrets and wood storks, but there are others too. In the second photo the two big birds are jabiru storks, Jabiru mycteria, the largest bird which lives in this hemisphere. There are also cormorants, white ibises, great egrets, snowy egrets, roseate spoonbills, tricolored herons, little blue herons, ducks, and even a hawk. The third photo is in the same area but a bit closer. These photographs were from the Crooked Tree Wildlife Sanctuary, which is heaven for bird watchers.
These wood storks were at the Crooked Tree Wildlife Sanctuary.

Another bird from Crooked Tree.
These are immature birds, photographed at Crooked Tree. Look at the huge feet!
We're not positive of the identification of this bird, which we photographed on Half Moon Caye.
These vultures were hanging around near one of the temples at Tikal. Maybe they were waiting for a tourist to expire, or for human sacrifices?
Photographed near the Mopan River.
Photographed at Tikal.
This bird was at Tikal. Tikal was fun because there were many birds along the paths between the temples.
We are not sure what species this is, as it flew away after just one shot.
The black and white bird was photographed at Tikal. The brown bird was photographed visiting a feeder at the Mopan River Resort. We could not identify them using any of our books.
