Black-Cat Bird on Ambergris Caye
by elbert on 02/12/08 10:36 AM

George Washington wanted the national bird of the United States to be a Turkey.
The Eagle was not unique and he thought the Turkey would have been the best choice.
I feel this way about the Black-Cat Bird and Belize.
This species is endemic to the Yucatan and coastal islands of Belize.
(meaning they are found nowhere else on Earth)

Close enough Elbert. It was one of those guys back then but it was not George Washington.

It was Benjamin Franklin.

Turkey Facts ( history)
Ben Franklin thought the North American wild turkey should be the national bird (rather than the Bald Eagle)

Personaly: I think it should have been the mourning Dove. smile
