Currently there are believed to be around 9,600 species of birds on earth (the number is growing, as definitions of species change).

About 250 living people have seen 5,000 of them.

About 100 people have seen 6,000.

12 have seen 7,000.

2 have seen 8,000.

About 570 species of birds have been recorded in Belize. I wonder if there is anyone in Belize who has seen them all?

Are there many seed eating birds indigenous to Ambergris Caye , and if so what type of seeds do they eat . We put a feeder out with sunflower seeds in it ,but have had no takers.

Fun to watch the grackles steal chunks of dry dog food from Bear's bowl, then soak it in his water dish to soften it before swallowing.
