We caught a quick bird photo of this Northern Beardless-Tyrannulet while hiking along the medicinal plant trail at Lower Dover Belize Jungle Lodge. Lower Dover has plenty of flycatchers to see, including the Great Kiskadee, our logo’s inspiration.
According to Birds of Belize, by H. Lee Jones, the Northern Beardless-Tyrannulet does not have the colorful markings common in flycatchers. Rather, it is the distinct, bright orange lower mandible, that identifies this jungle bird (click on the photo for a better look). Tropical birdwatchers will find the Northern Beardless-Tyrannulet sometimes hanging upside down while gleaning insects. Maybe you can get that bird photograph while visiting Lower Dover Jungle Lodge!
