Endemics of the “Mundo Maya”
 
Belted Flycatcher
(Xenotriccus callizonus)
Guatemala, Honduras, Belize and southern Mexico form what is known as the Mundo Maya (“Mayan World”).  The ancient Mayan civilization arose, flourished and diversified into more than 30 languages and ethnic subgroups within a region that was itself a profusion of natural diversity.  With its numerous habitats, as well as its natural barriers that produce habitat “islands,”  the Mundo Maya – with Guatemala at its heart – comprises a unique set of circumstances that gave rise to species found nowhere else in the world:  endemics.  Here is a list (with some links) of bird species endemic to the Mundo Maya:
