I'd like to invite you to learn about a superb birding destination.
Once you get a taste of tropical birding in your system, there's no
“Birding in San Blas, Mexico” with Nick & Mary Freeman
Mary and Nick spent two weeks birding one of the jewels of western
Mexico - San Blas in the state of Nayarit. This sleepy fishing
village a few hours north of Puerto Vallarta is the hub of the area’s
prime birding spots. Hospitable accomodations and guides can be had
readily. San Blas is a slow-paced village where one can walk the
streets at night to enjoy the local cuisine, and where the people are
friendly. From sandy beaches, to mangroves, to coniferous forests, to
thorn scrub forest to the north and more tropical forest to the
south, the area around San Blas is a great introduction to a
manageable number of tropical families, or a great destination for
any relaxed birder’s vacation. There are a number of endemics to be
had in this area, as well as a smattering of exotic flora. Mary will
feature her photographic essay of their most recent visit from April,
2006, which will feature some of the prized endemics of west Mexico.
Come on over to meet up with your fellow birding buds this night!
President and Programs Chair for Los Angeles Audubon
