Birding in Belize is great at duPlooy’s & BBG (Belize Botanic Gardens).  Join us  for morning coffee or tea on the deck from 6:30-7;30 am.  There are also birds visiting all during the day, but the complimentary coffee ends at 7:30.  .

Birders’ Alert!!!  Book a morning or evening guided walk through the gardens and around the property to see some of the many birds that have taken up residence on the property.  Let one of our expert bird guides, Philip Mai or Wilfred Mutrie, show you around.

27 years ago when we first arrived in Belize our 100 acre property was a cattle farm.  It still amazes us that our vegetation could grow so much is such a short time and go from having only a few birds and animals living on the property to more than 300 species within a 5-mile radius.

Pick up a checklist in the Gift Shop if you want to keep count or look for some specfici birds.

Serious birders, plan your itinerary based on the birds you would like to  see – just let us know before you arrive what you’d like to see and our guides will try and find them for you.

Check out the birds in the video.  These are some of the birds that visit duPlooy’s Deck. See the Emerald Toucanet holding court on the feeder, defending his breakfast from larger chachalacas, brown jays, a blue-crowned motmot, some little guys – redstart, yellow-winged tanager,  – and up in the gumbolimbo tree, masked tityra  – and lots more missed by our cameraman.

Bat Falcon

 

A bat falcon  sighting is always a thrill and one can  often be seen perched on a branch of a dead tree.  Sometimes you can see his breakfast mouse, other bird or snake clutched in his talons.

Another regular at the deck at duPlooy’s is the blue-crowned motmot.  See its “vanity tail”
