Birding in Southwest Mexico

1926 November 2005

Bob Cecil, Steve Dinsmore, Jay Gilliam (all from Iowa), and I birded by car to Jalisco and Colima, Mexico by way of Laredo, TX, Monterrey, Zacatecas, and Guadalajara. We saw more than 200 species. Unfortunately, much of the area was in a drought, so many of the lagunas were dry.
