There is an "ivory-billed woodpecker",
in the same genus, Campephilus, 
as the one now extinct in North America.
It is called the Pale-billed Woodpecker.
This one photographed during a FONT tour.

Woodcreepers are very different than Woodpeckers.
Here, a Streak-headed Woodcreeper.

Although looking a bit in this picture like one,
it's not a woodcreeper, but another bird
with an usual name, a Xenops.
The adjective, though, isn't much.
It's a Plain Xenops.

This bird recently (in 2013) had a name-change.
It was the Western Slaty-Antshrike.
Now it's the Black-crowned Antshrike,
one of a handful of antbirds in Honduras.

There are over 30 species of hummingbirds
in Honduras.
This on e is the Cinnamon Hummingbird.
Another, the Honduran Emerald
is the only bird endemic to Honduras,
that is there and no where else.

If seen with its crest erect,
few birds in Honduras, or anywhere,
are more spectacular than
the Northern Royal Flycatcher

Among the mammals in Honduras, there are monkeys.
Here, the White-headed Capuchin.
This species has had more than one common name in recent years.
It has been called the White-faced Capuchin
and the White-throated Capuchin.
(photo by Virginia Woodhouse)

Other monkeys in Honduras are the
Mantled Howler Monkey and
the Geoffroy's Spider Monkey.

Below: another mammal that occurs in Honduras,
but is hard to see,
in the area of the Caribbean coast
is the West Indian Manatee.
This photo was taken during a FONT tour
in nearby Belize.
