Birding La selva Baja

 Birding La Selva Baja

As the birds wake up we arrive on the dry forest of Celestun, in these area there are several cenotes sinkholes, that provide water to the main village and the forest. This forest becomes dry and hot, all of the grass, small shrubs become dormant during the dry season which is around the months of February to May, the trees loses their leaves during the hot dry season but they don´t die instead they have thorns as modified leaves that help them to preserve water during the dry season, as it rains again they will start budding and blooming this is what makes this forest so unique, as the trees and shrubs bloom in different periods birds have been adapted to feed on different fruits and flowers from different trees.


Some of the trees, shrubs and flowers  that represent this forest are: Mourning glories, cattails grass, gumbo limbos, cecropias, catuses, agaves, kapok trees, gourd trees, and many epiphytes.
