"Birds of Patzcuaro" in San Miguel de Allende

On 17 March 2009, master birder Georgia Conti presents "Birds of Patzcuaro" to the members of Aubudon in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.

"Red warbler. Blue Mockingbird. Black-polled yellowthroat. White-tailed hawk. Mountain Trogon. Squirrel cuckoo. Painted redstart. Russet-crowned motmot. Green kingfisher. White-striped woodcreeper. Cinnamon-bellied flowerpiercer. Berylline hummingbird. This is a short list of the birds found in the Pátzcuaro area.

...Georgia Conti, founder of the Pátzcuaro Birding Club, will present a lecture about the avian wonders of Pátzcuaro and its environs. The lecture will be accompanied by beautiful photographs, many by San Miguel resident Wayne Colony. San Miguel’s Audubon Society is planning a field trip to Pátzcuaro in the near future, and this lecture may entice you to join up to see these birds in person."

Patzcuaro Birding: Bright-Rumped Attila

There was a good look at a Bright-Rumped Attila at Cerro Hueco near Tacambaro last week, by Master Birder Georgia Conti and Hugo, whom Georgia is mentoring. Hugo is turning out to be a great birder, and seems to know where many interesting species can be sighted. The region around Lake Patzcuaro continues to provide good birding.
