Birding Honduras Highlights Tour

Honduras Birdwatching Tour for Avid Birders

This 14-day Birding Honduras Highlights Tour is a moderately-paced trip designed for the more avid birders. Honduras is a mountainous country (the highest point being Cerro de las Minas in Celaque NP, towering 2849m above sea level), with a whole range of vegetation and habitat types: rainforest, deciduous forest, pine forest, mangrove, sandy beaches (pearly white on the north coast, volcanic black in the south), cloud forests, and so on.

That diversity in ecosystems also explains the huge variety of birds (776 species to date, and more are being discovered regularly) on this tour you will see around 350 to 400 species of birds, including our only endemic bird the Honduran Emerald, asloa great viarity of insects, plants, 7 different mammals and reptiles.

This two-week Honduras’ Birding trip takes you through three of the four quarters of the country. We start our tour in La Tigra National Park, where the cloud forest offers excellent mountain birding along wide and fairly easy trails. This is the home of some key species such as the Wine-throated Hummingbird, Green-breasted Mountain-Gem, Singing Quail or White-faced Quail-Dove.

The western part of the country offers the opportunity to see interesting species including the Honduran Emerald, Ocellated Quail Sparkling-tailed Woodstar, Keel-billed Motmot, Yellow-breasted Crake and many more. Arriving to one of the top birding destinations on this part of the world, the Lodge at Pico Bonito will provide you excellent opportunities to see the magnificent Lovely Cotinga, many different species of hummingbirds such as the Long-billed Hermit, Violet Sabrewing, Crowned Woodnymph and more. During our stay we will visit the mangroves at Cuero y Salado where we will be focusing on the American-Pygmy Kingfisher, the Agami Heron, Boat-billed Heron.
