Audubon birdwalk at Peña Blanca
By Signe Hammer
The March Audubon birdwalk heads to Peña Blanca, a few miles past the Presa Allende, where a tree-lined stream and open farmland provide habitat for a wide variety of birds. With leaders Norman Besman, Bob Graham, Luke Rich and Signe Hammer we’ll look for lingering winter migrants such as Lincoln’s Sparrow and Wilson’s Warbler, as well as such locals as Cassin’s Kingbird, Bushtit, Loggerhead Shrike and American Kestrel.Audubon birdwalk Sun, Mar 16, 7:45am–noon Meets in front of Instituto Allende Ancha de San Antonio 20 Bob Graham, 154-9856 Members free, non-members 150 pesos or US$15
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 7:45am, as we leave promptly at 8. You’ll be back by about noon, with new entries for your life list and new birding friends.
