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 flies!
