We spent a great couple of hours pre-breakfast adding around 15 species to the trip list. A full list of the birds seen at Lamanai will be posted shortly.
My first Green Kingfisher
Grey Crowned Yellowthroat
Vermilion Flycatcher - very smart and one of 4 seen that morning
Black Headed Trogon
After breakfast we headed to the famous Lamanai Mayan ruins, which was fantastic. Some pics to be posted later.
Owl Butterfly - I wonder why it's called that?
I am still working on the ID of this one?
Awwww - a baby Howler
Before dinner we headed out on a sunset cocktail cruise, just the 4 of us, with a guide and a few rum punches. It turned out to be a good excursion with quite a few birds seen. Including:
Great Black Hawk - be interested if anyone has any other view on the ID of this bird - one seen, it was large had two white bars on the tail
Sophie and Jamie enjoying the relaxing cruise
After another delicious dinner we were back out again on another spot light boat safari. Roosting Kingfishers and another Northern Potoo were seen as well as this cracker below!
ID competition: before you look at the (crap) pic below can you work out what this roosting bird is?
Sun Grebe - very smart in the bins - unfortunately I was unable to do it justice with a decent pic
