Lake Yojoa Birding Blitz
25 – 29 January 2018
The Lake Yojoa Birding Blitz offers an amazing of great birdwatching, excellent companionship and scientific research. Every year in October, we attempt to record the more than 500 bird species in the various national parks, private reserves and protected areas in the Lake Yojoa area. This unique birding experience is attended by many enthusiastic birdwatchers both from Honduras and abroad. Together they contribute to the monitoring of the bird life in this beautiful region. The Lake Yojoa Birding Blitz is organized by Beaks and Peaks and the Honduran Ornithology Association (ASHO) and supported by the Chamber of Tourism of Honduras and the Lake Yojoa.
Participants are distributed over various teams, each led by an expert birder who has ample knowledge of the birds in the area and is also an active eBird contributor. Over the course of three full days, each team visits various routes to register the various species. Each day all observations are gathered and introduced into eBird to get a better insight in presence, absence, abundance and evolution of the birds in the Lake Yojoa basin.
With your participation in the Lake Yojoa Birding Blitz, you contribute to a deeper scientific knowledge of the avifauna in this hugely biodiverse region and to the promotion of Honduras as a birdwatching and nature destination par excellence. Furthermore, part of the tour price will be donated to the Honduran Ornithology Association (ASHO) and will be used to support local birders and bird watching clubs, to organize training for aspiring bird watching guides and to encourage further data collection by means of bird counts and monitorings in the area and in other parts of the country.
If you want to see great birds, enjoy magnificent landscapes, make a bunch of new friends, contribute to science and to the development of our beautiful country as a avitourism destination, this is an event you can’t miss! In 2018 the Lake Yojoa Birding Blitz will take place from January 25th to 29th. Contact us for more information and bookings!
