Lamanai Outpost Lodge - Day 2

We were woken at 5am by Howler Monkeys scaring the life out of us, in trees outside our cabin. At 6am we were at the lodge tucking into early morning coffee and hot muffins, before our 6.30am guided jungle dawn walk, with our excellent guide, Eduardo.

Bat Falcon - distant and in poor early morning light - one of a pair on site

Me and Eduardo birding

Dense habitat - the lack of bird photos paints a very different picture to what it was like. Over 2 hours we had around 50 species of birds, almost all of them were difficult to photograph in dense foliage and or high up in the canopy.   

 White Collared Seed Eater - common along edges and open brush

Jamie checking out a Keel Billed Tucan

 Tropical Kingbird - relatively common

After another afternoon exploring the grounds, Sophie and I went on a night walk around the grounds while Jamie and Julia went on another night boat safari. I was left slightly jealous as they came across a Northern Potoo, which showed down to c12 feet.   
Red Eyed Tree Frog

Kinkajou - one of 2 seen 

Cane Toad

 Also seen were a Possum, a Turantula and a family party of roosting Rufous Bellied Chachalaca.
