Belize, with its extensive and diverse topography, from low lying marshes and lagoons to the rainforests of the south, approaches 600 species of birds. Migrant and Resident birds are found throughout this tropical paradise.
Orchid Bay is located in the North of Belize just below the Yucatan, Mexico. It has substantially less rain than the land in the south. The north of Belize is dotted with many fresh water lagoons and low flat coastal land that is suitable to many bird species.
The Inn is close by several beautiful clear salt and fresh water lagoons in the north, boasting numerous wildlife birds. This year was the first year that giant Wood Storks were seen. Over a 100 nesting pairs were visible on the island located at Cudjoe Lagoon. The Roseate Spoonbill, Little Blue Heron, Great Egret, Bare-Throated Tiger Heron, Keel-billed Toucan, Jabiru, and many species of Parrots to name a few. Wake up in your Belize Vacation Rental to an amazing array of bird calls all around Orchid Bay!
