Birdwatching

We had our first group of birders visit!

Their goal was to spot a trogon, and immediately on arrival a beautiful Elegant Trogon perched on our capuline tree just next to our terrace, where the birders were drinking cups of hot tea.

Georgia, a local birding guide, toured our guests around the property and helped point out the various birds who have made their home at the Bosque. There were a couple of botonists in the group who were thrilled to see the variety of plants throughout the land - especially ferns!

Georgia was awarded Master Birder designation from Seattle Audubon and has founded a birding club for bird enthusiasts in the Lake P√°tzcuaro area.
