About this book

Why bird in Belize? Well, the birds of course. The spectacularly colorful are the first to grab your attention; and it is the appeal of finding another species at every turn in the trail. Belize's scenic beauty, its Mayan history, and its fascinating and elusive wildlife and the dense beautiful jungles are all reasons to visit.

A Birder's Guide to Belize covers over 100 sites in detail, with directions, description including trails, conditions, vendors, and facilities such as toilets, accomodations, and exhibits; birding strategy for arranging the visit, finding birds, and optimizing time; pointer to appropriate ecoregion (Appendix A); habitat; concerns, such as safety, difficulty, and access; fees, for entrance, tours, or services; contacts, including name, address, phone and fax numbers, e-mail, website; GPS coordinates to aid in locating sites; location and directions; map(s) illustrating the directions or the site layout; and a list of key species found at the site. Birders guide.

"This book begins with a very useful introduction to Belize History, Geography and Ecology, Birding Suggestions, Mammals, Reptiles, and Amphibians, Getting There and Around; Where to Stay; Travel Tips; How to Use This Guide; Recommended Readings; and Supplemental Material. It also includes a complete Annotated Checklist of the Birds of Belize; Bar graphs of Seasonal Abundance; Habitats and Ecoregions; Mammals, Amphibians, and Reptiles of Belize; References, and an Index of Birding Sites.
