Birding at Lake Zirahuén

Lake Zirahuén is some 10 miles from Pátzcuaro, Michoacán. On Saturday 5 July 2008 we birded in Pine/Oak forest habitat (with an abundance of poison ivy).

Acorn Woodpeckers have been busy here.

Many thanks to Molly-H-in-Paradise of Finca Tusa at Zirahuén for leading us on a hike (5 hours) through her walking territory to scout for birds. There were four of us: Molly, Georgia of Chirimoyo, and Glen and Tracy of Villa La Jacaranda. We identified 28 birds, with the able assistance of Georgia, our resident Master Birder.
