Belize Birding Festival

October 7, 2023 @ 6:00 am 6:00 pm

Belize is an ideal setting with many birding hotspots. There have been 600 bird species—including the keel-billed toucan (Belize’s national bird), harpy eagle, lesson’s motmot, the endangered jabiru stork, and the scarlet macaw— recorded in Belize; of these, approximately 20 percent are migrants from North America. The country is so forested that birders can sometimes spot up to 50 species in a single excursion, and over 200 on a single trip.

The annual Belize Birding Festival event includes speakers, workshops, vendors, art exhibitors, guided tours, and other special activities. Expect about 200 attendees at the event when you visit. The last festival was held in 2019 and was canceled in 2020 due to the pandemic. The Belize Birding Festival finally returns in 2023.  If you are a birding enthusiast, this annual festival should be at the top of your list of things to do in Belize.

Organized by the Belize Audubon Society, the festival will feature urban walks, exclusive birding tours, vendor exhibits, bird ID competitions, raffles, keynote presentation, and a panel discussion.
