*Birding Guatemala*
*Presented by Larry Sirvio*
Thursday March 24, 2016 @ 7:30 pm

Guatemala is an attractive birding destination with more than 720 bird
species and a high diversity of ecosystems. Guided by Guatemalan resident
Knut
Eisermann, we spent several days in the highlands followed by 3 days in the
tropical lowlands of Tikal, perhaps the best spot I’ve ever seen for
birding. The last
few days were spent in southern coastal wetlands which featured good rum
drinks as well as some interesting shorebirds and a resident pygmy-owl.
