Flock to Belize for the 2020 Annual Birding Festival
Belize is the ultimate birding destination in the Caribbean, and now you can join together with hundreds of other birdwatchers when you attend the third Belize Birding Festival. This two-day festival takes place on October 24-25, 2020, in Old Belize, Belize. This is the ideal time of year for a birding festival because Belize is the destination for as many as 20 percent of all migrant birds that travel south for the winter. In addition to having a chance to see these migrant birds, you also can observe the skies and landscape for the many birds that live in the area year-round. More than that, the festival gives you a chance to learn more about Belize’s species through presentations, exhibitions and more.
