The Scarlet Macaw is the undisputed king of the estate as this is the only place in Guatemala where it can nest. The best place to observe him is only 7 km away, easy to visit with an amazing excursion. However, this is just one of the hundreds birds nesting here. The forest situated north of Río San Pedro is home to more than 300 bird species of lowland rainforest. The extensive forest provides habitat to a number of forest raptors including Ornate Hawk- Eagle and Gray-headed Kite. In the forest an observation tower allows views into the surrounding environment and, with some good luck, the Lovely Cotinga can be seen. In the late morning, the tower allows us to see raptors like Plumbeous Kite, Swallow-tailed Kite, Broad-winged, Short-tailed, Black-collared and Crane Hawk, Bat- and Laughing Falcon, as well as Turkey, King, Lesser Yellow-headed and Black Vulture.
Common owls that you can see are the Mottled and Guatemalan Screech Owl, but also the Spectacled and Crested Owl have been recorded in the National Park. Along the river, five species of night hawks have been record-ed including the Northern Potoo.
In scrub vegetation along the rivers and in open oak savannah, some birds from the Yucatan peninsula can be observed, such as Yucatan Woodpecker and Nightjar, Caribbean Dove, and Northern Cardinal. A boat tour along the San Pedro and Sacluk rivers provides good chances to spot Agami Heron, while the vegetation around hosts many other species like Yucatan Jay and Flycatcher, Grey-throated Chat, White-collared Manakin, Red-capped Manakin, Tody Motmot.
