WEST MEXICO - FEB/MAR 2008

CAROLINE AND MYSELF SPENT THREE WEEKS TOURING WEST MEXICO, FROM MAZATLAN AND THE DURANGO HIGHWAY, IN SINALOA STATE, SOUTH TO MANZANILLO AND CIUDAD COLIMA, IN COLIMA STATE. A LARGE VARIETY OF SPECIES (270+) WERE FOUND, MANY IN LARGE NUMBERS AND OFTEN EASILY PHOTOGRAPHED!

THIS REGION HOLDS MANY WINTERING SPECIES FROM FARTHER NORTH, PLUS MANY RESIDENTS AND ENDEMICS TOO. OF THE MANY HIGHLIGHTS, PERHAPS THE MOST MEMORABLE DAYS WERE THE TWO BOAT TRIPS THROUGH THE SAN BLAS MANGROVES, LED BY OUR EXCELLENT GUIDE, CHENCHO. 

A SMALL SELECTION OF PHOTOS FROM THESE EXCURSIONS, AND ELSEWHERE, ARE SHOWN BELOW.
