Stretching nearly 1.5 million acres, the Sian Ka'an reserve is one of the largest protected natural avian habitats in the Yucatan Peninsula. As a Unesco World Heritage protected site, the place is a highly maintained ecological wonder with pristine surroundings. It teems with avian wildlife and other creatures, and is a great place to explore and enjoy nature. The reserve also houses many different species of tropical birds, which makes it a perfect bird watching destination.
Sian Ka'an Tours can be arranged very easily when you go to the Yucatan. Situated not far from famous places like Cancun, Playa del Carmen and Tulum, it is a great thing to experience. Along with many stunning birding spots in the reserve, there are vast ecosystems, wildlife and reptilian species to sidetrack you from simple bird watching. You will definitely be captivated with the amazing historic sites of the Mayan people, as much as you will enjoy watching thousands of migratory and tropical birds.
Bird watching, often called birding, is the study of avian species through the use of binoculars, telescopes and other visual enhancements. It can also be done by listening to bird calls or by simply watching the birds. Since the majority of bird species are more easily detected by listening than by watching, auditory components are used more often.
Ornithologists typically engage themselves in bird watching because of their scientific study, but many birdwatchers pursue birding simply for the fun of it. For everyone else, bird watching is a leisure activity that is somewhat social and educational.
Birding is very popular in Yucatan and many people visit the peninsula to observe birds and their natural habitat. You do not need to be an expert to enjoy watching birds – and it is a suitable activity for people of any age.
Whether you are going to lie in your hammock with a good book and binoculars or join one of the tours that take you to places where thousands of birds nest, your time spent birding in Yucatan will be something to remember.
