The Birds of Guyana

As a child and young man I remember the birds of Guyana, and especially the birds we saw in Georgetown and outlying areas. Certain local names come to mind: Kiskadee, Blue-saki, God-bird, Jumby bird, etc. During drives into the countryside a glimpse of some of the more colorful birds created an air of mystery and excitement. Later research revealed more about these birds. Some of this information is shared here.

The list at right is not a complete list of the "birds of Guyana". Probably no country of equal size is richer than Guyana in Birds. The birds of the forest have not been completely studied.
Some of the "Birds of the forest" are mentioned here, but important information, and pictures, are missing.

Guyana borders Brazil, Venezuela and Suriname, this fact offers some idea of the kind of birds to be found in the rainforest, but new and different species are also to be found.
