ABOUT THE BIRDING
The Mahaicony River is worth a short stop en route back from the Abary River delta. A side road paralleling the river gives good vantage to look for riverine specialties. The primary target species is Hoatzin, which can be seen perching near the river. Other possibilities are Masked Duck and Green-and-rufous Kingfisher. The nearby sugarcane fields are a good place to look for Long-winged Harrier.
LOCATION OF SITE
The Mahaicony River flows into the Pacific Ocean east of Georgetown. It is reached by driving about 45 minutes eastward from Georgetown along the Coastal Highway.
