Audubon’s bird walks are held on the third Sunday of the month—but this month, the day after tomorrow, is Día de los Locos. We are, therefore, canceling our June bird walk so that everyone can enjoy the parade. Keep an eye out for our signature Vermilion Flycatcher among the mojigangas!
Next month, two of our enthusiastic and knowledgeable guides, Mike Wheatcroft and Norman Besman, will lead us on a walk to Peña Blanca, where on past July walks we’ve found nesting Golden-fronted Woodpeckers and parents of several species feeding their fledglings. Look for details in Atencion.
Our monthly bird walks take us to five different sites in and around San Miguel, including El Charco del Ingenio, our beautiful botanical garden, and three sites along the Rio Laja. To make sure that everyone is able to see and enjoy the birds, our bird walk leaders carry telescopes for all to look through, and we can loan binoculars to those who need them.
Sociedad Audubon de México is the only Audubon chapter in the country, and one of the oldest environmental groups in San Miguel. We advocate for the appreciation and protection of birds, and the natural environment we share with them through recreation and education; we support sustainable projects that both protect our environment and benefit quality of life in the region.
