Belize is a tiny country that punches well above its weight in terms of birding; in spite of being comparable in size to the small US state of Massachusetts, it can boast nearly 600 species of birds, 80% (more than 450 species) of which are tropical residents. These are bolstered in this season by wintering or migrant orioles, warblers, vireos and thrushes that breed in North America. Classic tropical groups are well presented and expected, like toucans, trogons, motmots, puffbirds, jacamars, antbirds and woodcreepers. In addition to these, multiple species of hummingbirds, parrots and tanagers can be anticipated too. We will also be on the lookout for regional specialties like the outstanding Ocellated Turkey, Yucatan Jay, Yucatan Woodpecker, Yellow-headed Parrot, Tody Motmot, Rufous-breasted Spinetail, Yucatan Flycatcher, Gray-throated Chat, Black Catbird, Green-backed Sparrow, and Yellow-winged and Rose-throated Tanagers. Being just two hours flight from Houston, it is also incredibly convenient for those looking to make their first forays into tropical birding outside of North America. It does not involve a long flight, has plentiful birding, comfortable lodging to be based for it, all of which is readily accessible without any very long drives in a small country that does not have the daunting, extreme totals of species of tropical destinations further south. This makes it one of the natural choices for first tropical trips. Being so small, Belize can be covered comprehensively in a short tour like this, which only requires 5 days of vacation time.
