On wildlife tours in Honduras you can combine the best of North and South America, particularly in birding terms. Honduras is located in the heart of Central America and is home to over 778 bird species from more than 60 families. Many of these are at the northern or southern limits of their range, but still present in this melting pot of a country.
The wide ranging forested areas in Honduras offer something for beginner and experienced birders alike. In the highlands you can expect to look for the likes of Rufus-collared Thrush, Blue-throated Motmot and many species of hummingbirds. At the El Consejero private reserve there is a hummingbird garden for those who prefer not to hike to more remote areas.
Lake Yojoa is a RAMSAR site, designated by the United Nations as an area of wetlands of international importance. There you can find a great number and variety of ducks, herons and wading birds as well as small woodland species and many birds of prey such as Snail Kites and Ospreys.
The cloud forests of La Tigra were the first areas in Honduras to be designated a National Park. There you can find Mountain Trogons and Singing Quails among many other species. Nearby is the Colonial Mining Circuit of Santa Lucía where you can see the remnants of the Spanish occupation of the country in the 16th century.
The Pacific coast has wildlife-rich mangroves and seasonal lagoons that shelter neotropical migratory birds, one of the special events to witness on a wildlife tour in Honduras. In San Lorenzo Bay, also a RAMSAR site, you can take a boat ride to see many of the specialist mangrove bird species such as the Mangrove Vireo and the Ruddy-breasted Seedeater.
