Tropical bird sanctuary in the Guatemalan caribbean

With their clean feathers, their unique sound, the birds that live on the Livingston shores gave us an unintended spectacle during the sunset. Pelicans, seagulls, egrets (Ardea alba, Egretta thula), cormorants, kingbirds, were some of the birds we could identify flying through the Río Dulce tall canyon, in Livingston. We saw many birds interact, including fishing, nesting, and food competition. Nowadays, this flying performance could turn into a valuable tourism income for the local people. Livingston, Guatemala, is one of the destinations that offer paradise in the Caribbean, not only for tourists but also for birds and other species.
