Is the area a Birding paradise?


My only relationship with birds used to be the dove and duck hunting trips with my dad when I was young, however it always interested me the droves of tourist that came to the area to watch birds.

So I have tried to get some info on the Birding adventures in the region.

There are several outfitters who offer tours and guide services for this activity, most are on the El Fuerte area and some in the high sierra, there is even a group who does tours at the local Parque Sinaloa.

Russet-crowned Motmots, Black-throated Magpie Jays, Flame-colored Tanagers, Mexican Parrotlets, several kinds of Hummingbirds and Trogons… Most of the names don´t ring a bell, but i will try to identify them by the spanish name.

Later I will put links to some of the outfitters. Its this something that you guys like?

Saludos


Later Note ...

I came across a fantastic resource at Cornell.

Si,por favor, Amigo!

Yes, next time we come to your area we hope to explore for birds more there. We had heard birds were plentiful around Alamos, so it is interesting to learn of your favorito, El Fuerte area...
We had an inquiry from our travel journal about birding and driving in Barancas del Cobre, and we suggested he check your blog. He will be happy to see your info on birds!

Great work!

Robert and Laura
