The lagoons, creeks, logwood swamps, broadleaf forests, and marshes of the Crooked Tree Sanctuary cover over 16,400 acres and are the home to countless and thousands of birds.
They include; Vermillion Flycatchers, Fork-tailed Flycatchers, Yellow-rumped Warblers, White-Tailed Kites, Hawks, Laughing Falcons, Meadowlarks, Swallows, and Herons just to name a few.
Crooked Tree is known for its most famous resident, The Jabiru Stork.
In all of Central America, Belize boasts the largest nesting home for these great birds.
In November, Jabiru Storks come to Crooked Tree from Venezuela and Mexico to nest in the tall pines of the lowland pine savannas.
Jabiru Storks are making Belize their home due to losing their habitat in Venezuela and Mexico.
Being one of the tallest birds in the entire Western Hemisphere, the Jabiru stands 5 feet tall and has a wingspan of up to 8 feet.
Its heavy bill is about 12.5 inches long and perfectly designed to catch fish, frogs, and snakes.
Once at the sanctuary, you will be introduced to your good train bird guide, who will elaborate more on the tour.
You will then be placed in a nice small boat with your guide, who will take you all over the lagoon, pointing out every wildlife in sight, particularly the birds.
Bottled water will be available for you.
Please bring along sunscreen, insect repellent, a camera (of course), and also a binocular for better viewing of those amazing birds.
This excitement could last up to three hours after which you will be transported back to your destination of choice.
We highly recommend this tour and genuinely believe that this experience could provide a renewed passion and appreciation for nature and the many wonders it could provide for your enjoyment.
