With the rainy season upon us, some of us welcome a much needed shower! After months of hot, dusty weather, the long-awaited precipitation is celebrated by many. Not only are the plants rejoicing, but creatures who have been looking hard for fresh water the last few months are now quenching their thirst. Of course the birds are happy too, delighting in the opportunity for a proper ‘bird bath’ under the cool, refreshing rain. This pair of Mourning Doves have the right idea, making the most of this afternoon shower on Ambergris Caye.

About the Author: Tamara Sniffin

I’m a sucker for a fuzzy face, a feathered face, a face with fins or even one with scales! I am in love with the creatures and the flora that are synonymous with Belize and every opportunity I have to learn more about them and explore their wild habitats I am there! I’m the happiest when I’m snorkeling the reef and swimming with turtles, however my passion is not just limited to critters! Laced throughout this compact jungle gem of a country live the Kriol, Maya, Garifuna, Mestizo and Spanish people, and experiencing each culture, especially their celebrations is one of my favorite pastimes.
