Backyard Birds - Patzcuaro

Backyard birding at La Jacaranda in Patzcuaro is a pleasure, epecially since we eat most meals on the back veranda with binoculars and bird books at hand. At this time of the year, when it is very dry, many birds come to the water we put out. The cool and green summer rainy season should soon kick in; it is overdue.

My best yard bird yesterday was an endemic Hooded Grosbeak. We ran into a friend when out walking today, and he said he just had a Sparkling-Tailed Woodstar in his backyard here in town.
