More Birding in Patzcuaro

Georgia sez:

Monday July 28, 2008
Birding La Finca Tusa, Zirahuén

Molly Hoopes, a botanical illustrator who studies and paints plants in the Lake Patzcuaro area, will lead a bird walk near Lake Zirahuen. You’ll find information, photos and bird list from a previous trip at Note the photo of the Acorn woodpecker’s granary tree. This outing involves walking/hiking and may require climbing through some barbed wire fences. Bring binoculars, but leave your scope at home--you won’t want to lug it around. Bring nourishments (water and snacks).

Patzcuaro Birding Club will leave Patzcuaro at 9:00 AM, and return by 2:00 PM, mas o menos. Again, let’s try to carpool as much as possible. The point of departure will be the street in front of the Policia Federal by the Pemex Station in Patzcuaro.

Thursday July 31, 4:00 – 6:30 PM
Hummingbird Study

Georgia is hosting another hummingbird study for those of
you who couldn’t make the last one and any who want to come again. Location is Corazon de Durazno, about 3 miles south of Patzcuaro on the highway that goes to Santa Clara del Cobre. Refreshments will be served and ample parking is available.

Thanks for all the birding information. I didn't this area of Mexico had bird tours or anyone so knowledgable about the subject. Can't wait to explore all the links you've provided.
