We’ve been at D&D Brewery in Los Naranjos for the past week. We’re camping in the brewery’s large grass parking lot. D&D is owned by a former Peace Corps volunteer from Virginia. The beer is passable, but nothing to write home about.
We’re here because 500 species of birds have been recorded in the area – Lago Yojoa, Honduras’ largest lake. In the past week we’ve been birding with Walter, D&D’S birding guide. We’ve listed approximately 90 species. We’ve birded the lake in a leaky rowboat, climbed up the side of Santa Barbara mountain to the cloud forest to see Resplendent Quetzals, birded a finca that grows coffee and cocao, and birded in the Parque Nacional Cerro Azul Meámber, a park with drop dead gorgeous scenery.
Because the forest is so dense and the birds move so fast I could only capture a few of the birds we saw.
The following photos show the various habitats that we’ve birded in.
