Birding northern Belize with John Hershey. 

Birding Northern Belize

John will share photos and anecdotes of his birding trip to Northern Belize in March 2023. He visited the Crooked Tree Lagoon Wildlife Sanctuary and the New River at Lamanai including the birdy Lamanai Archeological Reserve in search of tropical birds of all kinds. Among the amazing wading birds he will illustrate include: Boat-billed Heron, Bare-throated Tiger-Heron, Pinnated Bittern, and Jabiru. Some of the raptors will include: Laughing Falcon, Bat Falcon, Snail Kite, and Black-collared Hawk. A variety of other birds include American Pygmy Kingfisher, Yucatan Woodpecker, Pale-billed Woodpecker, Ivory-billed Woodcreeper, Black-headed Trogon, Red-lored Parrot, White-necked Puffbird, Yucatan Jay, Red-legged Honeycreeper, and Blue Bunting. He also may show some photos of the Mayan temples at Lamanai and the Mennonite Country.

John is a former Secretary and a Director for the Hudson Mohawk Bird Club (HMBC). He has been leading field trips to Vischer Ferry Preserve, Peebles Island, and Fox Hill Road for many years. Birding has led him to travel throughout North America and more recently to Ecuador, Costa Rica, Panama, and India. He has presented a number of programs on some of his favorite birding trips as well as on local birding hotspots. He is semi-retired and works part time as a psychologist in private practice.
