Day One: Monday, July 14, 2003
Meet the 2003 Team
We arrived safely in Belize City after a smooth four-hour
flight from Raleigh with a layover in Miami. Our adventure
began this afternoon at the Baboon Sanctuary in Bermudian
Landing. We were within a few feet of a female black-headed
trogon almost as soon as we walked in the forest. We
also had close encounters with a "wish-willy"
(a type of iguana) and leaf-cutter ants. We had a great
time feeding cashew fruits and Cecropia leaves to a family
of howler monkeys. They literally ate out of our hands.
Log on tomorrow to find out more about our “Mystery Hike” planned for tonight at Warrie Head Lodge in Tea Kettle Village.
