Belize and North Eastern Guatemala 5th - 26th November 2005

Birding and Duding in Yucutan and Belize July 26th to Aug 31st 2003

  • This year our destination was the endemism hotspot of the Yucutan peninsula in Mexico, and Belize. We spent the last week on Cozumel Island. This area has many endemic species and subspecies (a fair few probable splits in the pipeline) along with many more species endemic to the wider area of Central America...Tim Allwood and Claire Stephenson report.
