Of all the habitats in Belize, the littoral forest on the cayes is the most endangered due to coastal development. Caye littoral forests benefit the Black Catbird and White-crowned Pigeon, both are listed as Near-Threatened species. Mangrove habitats attract birds such as the Rufous-necked Wood-rail. During migration the cayes are an excellent place to see migrants such as warblers, thrushes, tanagers, and orioles.
