Feathered friends of Ambergris Caye

Thursday, March 25th, 2010

One of the joys of traveling to a foreign land is discovering the local wildlife. Common birds seen daily here on La Isla Bonita can be a new and exotic experience for a visitor, and although the residents might not think twice when one of these winged wonders grace the sky a tourist may be sent scrambling for his camera! Chances are you won’t have to look far for these Caribbean creatures and a walk on the beach will almost guarantee the sight of Brown Pelicans, Frigate birds, Great Blue Herons, seagulls and sandpipers to name a few. The cooing songs of the White-winged Doves are a constant lullaby while Great Kiskadee sing"Quest-ce-que dit" and Tropical Mockingbirds go through their repertoire of twills and tweets.
