Harpy Eagle The Tikal National Park is home to 410 registered species, according to Randell A. Beavers, who published the most recent Tikal Bird Checklist in 1992. To the not modest list of resident bird species, 50 migrants may be added during the cold winter months in North America, when many beautiful songbirds make Tikal their winter residence. In this section, you may find suggested bibliography for your birding trip in Tikal, along with our own checklist- by no means as complete as the one found in Beavers' book, and an article on migrant species, which we believe will be of interest. In addition to what is contained in this section. Birding with our guide will give you the chance to learn more about a number of species, your guide will know exactly where they may be seen.
