I communicate with a few other people who own lodges in Belize, people I don’t really know, but I feel like I know them. One of these people is Rob Hirons, owner of a southern Belize lodge called The Lodge at Big Falls. I have visited his place briefly, it is located right on a river down near Punta Gorda. A fabulous place to spend a week or so.
Rob publishes the Toledo Howler, a newsletter promoting southern Belize which I blog about occasionally. I was extremely pleased to receive an email recently announcing his new Belize birding website! This is a super great site where you can hover over the image of the bird and it is easily identified with the movement of your mouse. The photos on the site are images he took himself near his place in southern Belize. I am impressed with the layout of his new website. It is organized around the variety of habitats in their region, and he says he intends to continue adding images. I sent him several bird images I took myself from our island out at Glover’s Reef.
