Find yourself in the heart of an aviary paradise with a birding adventure through jungles and up mountains! This slice of Mexico is perfect for catching sight of an incredible variety of tropical birds thanks to the confluence of migratory patterns and environmental features. You'll slowly work your way from sea level up into the Sierra Madre mountains—all while peeking through your binocular at colorful birds. Plus, you'll get the chance to bird-watch in El Tuito, where the rare rosy thrush-tanager is found.

excellent tour and Michael was an excellent host. If we have pics of birds we cannot identify, can you advise a site we can send the picture to to identify?

Cynthia was enthusiastic, intelligent and helpful guide. We left on time, stopped for wood oven fresh bread, tasty cinnamon coffee then drove safely to see about 50 species of birds! We were delivered back to our hotel after a leisurely break to identify all the birds we has seen. I highly recommend this tour.
