He stopped to talk to a couple of the hunters to verify that he was safe biking in the area while they were hunting, and one of them proudly showed him their kill. I was glad I wasn't there since I am such an animal lover, but I do understand that they were doing it to feed their families. I'm not posting the photo of the javelina in-line since it might be offensive to some readers, but if you'd like to see it, you can click this link to view it in Photobucket.
In addition to that unexpected encounter, Barry saw a nice assortment of birds, including a few new ones for his life list. The photos below are species he didn't already have pictures of in his files. I am looking forward to joining him on the next trip up to GBE as it is an excellent place to view a variety of birds and wildlife (we've seen a fox, and he even saw a croc there) and normally very few two-legged mammals. We're planning on a lot more Belize birding in the new year.
