birdwatchers from all over the world. Thousands of birders come to
Belize every year to see rare and unique birds in their natural and
largely unspoilt habitats. There are almost 600 species of birds that
make Belize their winter or full time home, with more being discovered
all the time! In Belize you can spot everything from the very rare (and
unbelievably huge!) Jabiru Stork to tropical varieties of Orioles and
other more familiar birds. Of course you can also see Toucans, a
variety of Parrots and colorful Macaws. If you are in coastal areas
there are dozens of shore and sea birds which can be spotted both
soaring in the air and feeding in the sea and wetlands.

The Hummingbird Inn offers both inland jungle birdwatching tours and
coastal shorebird watching tours. We are happy and proud to have one of
the most knowledgeable local bird guides conducting tours for us! The
inland tours usually take you to one of the protected national parks
where you can literally see and photograph hundreds of tropical birds
in their natural settings. The coastal tours will take you to some
prime local areas such as the Sapodilla Lagoon where there is a very
good chance to spot the very rare Jabiru Stork. The Jabiru Stork is
Belize's national bird and is one of the largest flying birds in the
world. It stands over five feet tall with an unbelievable 12 foot
wingspan and looks like a small light aircraft when it takes off and

birds on the ten acre resort of the Hummingbird Inn. Often while eating
breakfast or dinner you only have to look up from your plate
