Birding activity in Pátzcuaro continually increases.Georgia Conti of Patzcuaro recently took three UK geographer/birders to some of our favorite birding spots: Rancho Madroño, Zarzamora, and the bridge to Jarácuaro. The day yielded a count of 60 birds. A favorite was the Slate-throated Redstart.
On Monday, 11 August 2008, the Pátzcuaro Birding Club will leave at 9:00 AM to seek swifts and other birds at Tzararácua Falls, just south of Uruapan. Swifts are the most aerial of birds, the essence of birdness, and some even sleep and mate on the wing. For more information on this field trip see http://patzcuarobirder.blogspot.com/.
Tzararácua is good for birding, hikes, picnics, and there is even a tirolesa--a zip line.
