Honduras has been one of the best-kept secrets in the birding world for years, but recently the word has been spreading. Great birds abound. This short tour over New Year's visits one of the finest lodges in all of Central America. It also happens to be one of the best birding lodges. With wonderful cabins situated along lighted paths in the forest and a splendid restaurant, The Lodge at Pico Bonito is the prefect headquarters for a holiday birding trip. Adjacent to the vast Pico Bonito National Park, the beautifully kept grounds, gardens, and feeders are surrounded by forest that is home to noisy White-crowned Parrots, confiding hummingbirds, colorful trogons, gaudy Keel-billed Toucans, and handsome Chestnut-colored Woodpeckers. The observation tower and trails at the lodge allow access to sites for two very sought-after Middle American species, Keel-billed Motmot and Lovely Cotinga.

Additionally, the lodge offers the perfect base for day trips to bird other northern Honduran habitats. One day we'll visit the odd mix of cactus and thorn forest in the Aguan Valley, the best locale for finding the Honduran Emerald, the only endemic member of the Honduran avifauna. We'll also visit the wetlands of the Cuero y Salado Wildlife Refuge and take a boat trip along a mangrove-lined river where we might see such notables as Boat-billed Heron, Sungrebe, Gray-necked Wood-Rail, and American Pygmy Kingfisher, along with the lovable Manatee. The combination of great birds, lodging, and food make it a wonderful destination for a New Year's getaway.
