ABOUT THE BIRDING

Hope Beach is a mudflats area where coastal birds can be found near Georegtown. It's a good, short stop en route to the Abary River in early morning. The primary target species is Scarlet Ibis. The area is also good for migratory shorebirds and sometimes tropical terns such as Sandwich Tern and Sooty Tern.

Hope Beach is located en route to the Abary River. The mudflats there are a good place to look for Scarlet Ibis as well as various other herons and shorebirds.a Also located en route is the Mahaicony River. It's possible to arrange a boat trip up the river or the river edge can be birded by following a side road that parallels the river. The river edge is a good place to find the strangely bizarre Hoatzin, a common bird of the Amazon Basin.
