I finally got around to putting together an album of all of the different species of birds I photographed on my recent trip to Belize. Here is the link to the album. It can also be found on my Belize photograph page.http://www.keepyoureyespeeled.net/photographs-2/belize-february-2015/nggallery/belize-2015/birds-of-belize-february-13-20-2015#gallery/1b3db4187a3c1ae17741376927f6e2f7/1020. I tried to name the ones I could identify and guessed at others. If I incorrectly identified a species or if I wasn’t able to identify a species please feel free to correct me or to provide the right identification.
These are only the birds I was able to photograph, saw many other species that were too quick for me to capture on camera. I was amazed by the abundance of birds in the Crooked Tree area. And I was not there under ideal conditions for observing the many species of water fowl and inhabit and visit the lagoons near crooked Tree. The water was still high, from the fall floods. When the lagoons dry up later in the Spring, 1000’s of birds flock to the area for easy fishing in the shallow waters. I still was more than please with the beautiful birds i was able to see and hear. Hope to get back someday, when the water is lower and when the cashew are being harvested. And if I don’t, I have so many places I want to visit, , than the village of Crooked Tree, it’s abundant wildlife, friendly residents and the staff of the Birds Eye Lodge will always be fondly remembered. It is a vision of paradise in this wonderful country.
