    Pack your binoculars and grab your log book--there are plenty of birds to spot on Belize. The small country is packed with great places to see birds, including the rainforest, Crooked Tree Wildlife Sanctuary, and Shipstern Nature Reserve. What's your choice for Belize birding?

    Did you know how exotic the birds are in Belize? How about the orange breasted falcon? The Agami heron? The Yucatan Jay is a treasure to see with their combination of blue and black feathers.

    one of the best spots for birding in Belize is the South Stann Creek (near Red Bank Village), which is home to the Scarlet Macaw. You can see hundreds of them flocking to the creek seasonally, especially from January to March. Half Moon caye monument and Caracol archaeological reserve are also great for birding.

    I recommend the Crooked Tree wildlife sanctuary because of the giant and rare jabiru stork, which you easily see there. The Mayan site of El Caracol and its surrounding forest are also great for bird spotting. Whatever you do, get yourself a local guide who knows their birds to take around.
