Beginning on November 4 and running until November 13, Honduras Birding for Conservation Tour brings together over 50 worldwide avitourists to see more than 750 species of birds found throughout the country.
The Birdwatching Tour includes three major stops. First is the Mayan city of Copan where the tour begins. Here birdwatchers can expect to see Naranjas, a type of Nightingale, Red-Throated Parakeets, and Great Swifts, hidden among the city’s ancient structures.
After this, visitors will be taken to the Yojoa Lake, located in the western highlands. It is the largest lake in Honduras, with a surface area of 79 km, and a key convergence point for birds from across the hemisphere.
The tour ends with a visit to Pico Bonito, situated on the tropical northern coast where one can catch sights of Toucans, Honeycreepers, and Brown Hummingbirds.
Over this trip’s nine days, the Birding for Conservation Tour also provides participants with unparalleled access to the country’s numerous national parks. Each park visited by the tour offers guided walks with some of the top international birdwatchers, such as Bill Thompson III, Tim Appleton, and Jeff Gordon.
