Scarlet macaws in the Chiquibul
It’s not every day you go on the adventure of a lifetime, one you have dreamed about for years, and hoped to add to your list of top ten cool things you’ve done in your life… and when the dream becomes a reality it can almost be surreal. Such was the vibe as I boarded a small boat on the Macal River, deep within the Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve and traversed the waterway to Scarlet Macaw territory in the Chiquibul National Park. As if this wasn’t exciting enough, I was with one of Belize’s most respected champions for wildlife, and birder extraordinaire, the one and only Roni Martinez.
