Along with stunning scenery and a wealth of Maya temples and archaeological sites, Belize is also known for an amazing diversity and number of birds.
From flocks of migrants attracted to the veritable supermarket of insects and plants found in the country’s pristine rainforests, to the many multihued residents such as parrots, scarlet macaws, falcons and other tropical forest dwellers, little Belize always has a backdrop of delightful birdsong to accompany any activity.

The Great Kiskadee lives in open woodlands, streamside thickets, groves, orchards and parks. In the tropics it occurs widely in many semi-open habitats, usually avoiding dense unbroken forest. It is a permanent resident throughout its range and does not migrate.

I want to be an Eco-Kid because I love nature. My mom have taught me since I can remember not to throw away garbage through the car window and one time I did and she saw me and we had to go all the way back for me to pick it up.

When I was 6 my mom also took me canoeing and we saw garbage on the river and a bird picking at it that is when I saw for myself how it can hurt animals.
