Birds of Guatemala Trip Report
Maine Audubon’s Staff Naturalist, Doug Hitchcox, will give a lively visual presentation about a trip he and 12 Audubon members took to Guatemala, a birding paradise, in March 2023. This travelogue will follow the group’s travels day by day, highlighting the amazing birds, delicious food, and stunning vistas, as well as the incredible cultural experiences sprinkled throughout the trip.
Guatemala has a magical hold on those who visit—the land of the quetzales, where active volcanoes still shape the terrain and descendants of proud Mayans sell wares in bustling colorful markets. The group traveled from a biological reserve in the Peten region and the temples of Tikal, to the pacific slope with a coffee plantation and Lake Atitlan, recording 325 bird species.
We still have limited space available in our March 2024 trip to Guyana, a true wilderness paradise! More information available at: https://fieldguides.com/
