Two Days In Mexico

I had an opportunity to get down to Mexico for a brief 2 day jaunt for work.  I was hoping I would be able to do a little birding during my time down there.  Unfortunately, I was able to do just that a “little” birding.  I picked up a few new species but not nearly as productive as I had hoped.  I stayed in an all inclusive resort near Cancun.  The grounds weren’t that bird friendly and the shoreline was nearly deserted.  Magnificent Frigatebirds were everywhere, but not much else.  The normal pristine blue ocean was replaced by a giant mat of seaweed.

During my brief trip down to Cancun, I added these birds to my life list:

  • Plain Chachalaca
  • Shiny Cowbird
  • Mangrove Vireo
  • Spot-breasted Wren
  • Tropical Mockingbird
  • Hooded Oriole
