We started this morning as we usually do on Sunday, with a bird walk. We saw many of the usual suspects, but we did manage to add a new hummingbird to our life lists -- a female Green-Breasted Mango. The distinctive stripe down her throat, breast, and belly made her easy to identify with the help of our Birds of Belize book.

After birding, we strolled down to Ak'Bol for breakfast. Unfortunately, it seemed like just about every tourist staying north of the bridge had the same idea, so we had a long wait for our food, and our breakfast turned into brunch.

While we were waiting, Barry took a quick walk down to the Osprey nest down the beach a ways and caught the (large!) nestling feeding, while Mom and Dad stood guard.


The nestling is in the center but appeared nearly full-grown

When the food did come, it was delicious. I had a spinach omelet, one of the specials of the day; and Barry had a huge breakfast burrito.


He ate it all, plus my beans!

Sunday SLIDESHOW: Best Bird Photos From Lower Dover Belize Jungle Lodge

During the short period of writing the Lower Dover Jungle Lodge blog, we have been lucky to photograph many different tropical birds that call our 100 jungle acre hotel property home. These are some of our favorite bird shots from all of the bird stories we have done to this point. All of these bird photos were taken at Lower Dover.

Very nice! They got some excellent photos with a camera that is probably quite a bit better than ours.
