February 19 Audubon Birdwalk at Peña Blanca
By Signe Hammer
With leaders Bob Graham, Norman Besman, Signe Hammer, and Luke Rich, we’ll head to Peña Blanca, a few miles past the Presa Allende. Open farmland, trees and a stream provide habitat for a good mix of raptors and songbirds, including Crested Caracaras and Red-tailed Hawks, such familiar friends as the Golden-fronted Woodpecker and less common local birds like the tiny Black-eared Bushtit, plus wintering Lark Sparrows and Black-throated Gray Warblers.
Audubon Birdwalk. Sun, Feb 19, 7:45am-12pm. Meets in front of Instituto Allende, Ancha de San Antonio 20. Members free, non-members 100 pesos or US$10
The walk is open to beginning and experienced birders alike. Wear sturdy walking shoes and bring water and a hat. Carpooling is essential, so if you have a car, please bring it. Plan to arrive at 7:45, as we leave promptly at 8. Questions? Call Bob at 154-9856 or Norman at 152-3644.
