Come and bird along a leafy trail by the Río Laja, near the bridge on the new road to Guanajuato. With leaders Luke Rich, Norman Besman, Bob Graham, Signe Hammer and Mike Wheatcroft, we’ll look for wintering and year-around residents, such as Green and Belted Kingfishers, Blue and Black-headed Grosbeaks, Green Herons, and a variety of egrets, as well as Lark and Clay-colored Sparrows, Wilsons and Yellow-rumped Warblers, and our familiar Golden-fronted Woodpeckers and Great Kiskadees. In the sky over the nearby farm fields we may spot a Crested Caracara, Northern Harrier or American Kestrel.
