Rainy Day in the Neighborhood
If these vultures look a little dejected, it's because they are soaking wet and have been for the past few days. Seems we had near record rain ... and over the Christmas Bird Count too. Still, we managed to muster a few teams of hardy souls, braved the elements and conducted our count on 31 December. Those of you facing snow and ice on your Christmas Counts likely do not feel too sorry for us. Even so, torrential downpours beginning late morning and lasting throughout the afternoon put a "damper" on bird activity. We are still tabulating "count week" birds and I'll post the results next week. Stay tuned!
Came to Belize for "a one year project." That was 1986. With husband Bruce, have studied birds, bats, cats and general biodiversity issues. Based in one of the most beautiful tropical forests in the world: northwest Belize near Chan Chich Lodge.
