Honduras is the largely undiscovered gem of Central America. It is usually thought that Costa Rica is the leader as far as protected land areas go, but no, Honduras is the “Shining Star” and leads the field, with the highest percentage of protected areas. The national parks and reserves are home to over 700 species of birds and although there is only one true endemic species (Honduran Emerald), Honduras is one of the richest parts of the North Central American endemic bird area, holding the largest proportion of the region’s endemics. Amongst the country’s marvellous birdlife are Keel-billed and Tody Motmots, Lovely Cotinga, Ruddy Crake, Ornate Hawk-Eagle, Wine-throated Hummingbird, Bushy-crested and Black-throated Jays, Rufous-browed Wren, Gartered Trogon and Mottled Owl. We stay for seven nights at the luxurious Pico Bonito Lodge, located within the Pico Bonito National Park, where there are an array of avian gems to enjoy in the lodge gardens and trails, including the superb Lovely Cotinga. Field excursions will be made from Pico Bonito to a number of excellent birding locations. On this tour we avoid travelling via the USA by using British Airways flights to and from Grand Cayman and spend a total of three nights there – this will allow us the opportunity of some relaxed birdwatching and snorkelling, with a few interesting species, such as White-tailed Tropicbird, Vitelline Warbler and La Sagra’s Flycatcher. Travel with Nigel and Peter, and see why this trip is another great addition to the suite of Caribbean holidays. This tour will be run in conjunction with Avian Adventures.
