Audubon conducts a birdwalk on the third Sunday of every month for the pleasure of its members. Non-members are welcome with a donation of 100 pesos. The two principal sites visited are the Charco del Ingenio and a bridge over the Río Laja in Montecillo de Nieto. The walks originate at 8:00 a.m. Participants should meet at the entrance to the Instituto Allende.
This month's birders are lucky to have Signe Hammer, who honed her birding skills up in New York City--Central Park and the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge, among other top birding sites--and Norman Besman to lead them, with Norman bringing the scope along to enhance hikers' sighting pleasure. It's a good idea to bring a hat and water and binoculars if you have them. Cars will be available, or bring one to help carpool. You'll return around noon.
Signe will have the new Audubon bird and butterfly guides for purchase.
