There is usually a Green Kingfisher or two and a range of songbirds from Mexican Jays to White-collared Seedeaters—as well as such familiar friends as the Vermilion Flycatcher and Curve-billed Thrasher. We’ll also look for such winter arrivals as the Lark Sparrow.
The walk is open to beginning and experienced birders. Wear sturdy walking shoes and bring water and a hat. We will have telescopes, a few pairs of binoculars to lend, and Audubon bird guides for purchase. Carpooling is necessary, so if you have a car, please bring it. Plan to arrive at 7:45am, as we leave promptly at 8am. For more information, visit our website at: http://www.audubonmex.org.
