Belize, an obscure British colony formerly known as British Honduras, is a relatively new nation that is not very well known. However, it boasts of one of the most varied habitats you will ever find and filled with plenty of exotic avifauna!

Explore its rich habitats as author and bird guru Elbert Greer takes you Birdwatching with Bubba!

About the Book

Birdwatching with Bubba is not your typical guide. It is actually a collection of stories and photographs that was published in the local paper where the author writes about the ‘bird of the week’ column for the San Pedro Sun. For those who choose to, it can still be used as a guidebook since the author used all the bars and bartenders’ correct names so you won’t get lost.

Greer has tried to make all the bird information as accurate as possible, but that's not at all what this book is about, as you will see. This humorous gonzo style of bird watchers guide to Belize also includes tips on comfort, hazards and obstacles as well as how to get the opportunity for the most likely sighting of the bird you’re looking for.

Stick this book in your bag and carry it birdwatching! Gain valuable knowledge like the seasons when the wet lands are wet and when they are dry enough to explore. Use the maps and written directions to find Belizean sites and have an unforgettable adventure in Belize Birdwatching with Bubba!

I was going to buy a copy to bring with me when I'm down in 10 days, but the books aren't already printed and ready to ship. frown

Elbert, do you have copies available? An autographed book would be especially nice! smile

My family booked a bird tour through Elbert when we were down last July and it was very interesting and great fun!

elbert:
Is this a new book or a rerelease of the first book? I bought several of the first book and would be interested if this one is different?

Its called a 'Picture Book' by the publisher, lots of bird photos.
The Publisher originally designed the format for childrens books, the Bird of the week stories with big(8.5x11) color illustrations.
Had to leave Celi,Chico and Cleo out of this one.

Bummer. I called Xlibris to see if I could get a copy before I come down on January 1 and they said it would be mid-January delivery. Maybe I'll drop by and see if you've ordered extra copies since I'll be around until mid-January, Elbert! Otherwise, I'll have to wait until my next trip to get that autograph! I have a couple of avid bird-watchers joining me this time and I know they would've enjoyed some insight from Bubba.
