This story is strictly for the birds. The Belize Audubon Society is celebrating October as the month of birds. Migratory birds from Central and South America are flying south this time of year. Itís an opportunity for bird watchers throughout the country. According to Belize Audubon Societyís Publicity Coordinator, itís time to pull out your binoculars.

Dirk Francisco, Publicity Coordinator, BAS

ďOctober is the time when birds come back to Belize. Birds migrate south when itís winter in the north. Youíll notice the bird population increases in Belize. So we are using the month of October to increase the awareness of the importance of birds, and also to foster an appreciation of birds amongst Belizeans. Belize Audubon Society will be having its annual urban Birdwatch activity.Ē

Jose Sanchez

ďA lot of people donít know about birds and pretty much bird-watching they would say itís for the birds. At least downtown all we see are pigeons and they seem to be a menace. How can you convince people that this is worth their while?Ē

Dirk Francisco

ďJose, many Belizeans donít know that right now Belize is being recognized globally as an important area for birds. Belize is a part of the flyover for birds as they migrate further south to the Amazon and different parts of Central America. Just recent, Belize has been recognized as a country that is important for birds through the important bird area program which is a global program that identifies areas that are important for birds. There is a new document out on birds that we can share to all Belizeans in terms of knowledge. So wherever you go Jose, there are birds especially in Belize. There are not only pigeons in downtown Belize City; there are many birds that people donít see. So this is the opportunity for them to see what is actually in their back yard.Ē

The first in the weekend bird watching outings was held last Sunday October third in Corozal Town. If you would like to know more information about Birds of Belize or join in an Audubon sponsored bird watch, you can reach Dirk Francisco at 223-5004.
