Hola Audubonista(s) Allen,
Report from the Malecon at Jocotepec, Jalisco, Mexico (Nov 11, 2007):
We had a great turnout of birds and watchers but once again the Birds won 52 to 34.
Special recognition goes to today's Lead Birders Don Bell and Tom Holeman.
The Lake is up; the pelicans are back but out far at this end of the Lake. The most numerous species was the white-faced ibis with well over a hundred foraging in the lirios at the ends of the malecon.
A "life-bird" for many of us was the plumbeous vireo.
Be sure to watch for announcements about the Christmas Bird Counts at Lake Chapala and Guadalajara.

Aves Galeria
Los Auduboniastas de Lago de Chapala are an ad hoc flock of birders of various levels of interest and expertise. There are no dues or membership requirements. If you are with us or are on our email list, you are US.
Colima Volcano
We will be communicating with Colima Birders Ruth and Von Peacock about a trip up the Volcano. We will want to limit the group to about 10 that we can pack into three high-clearance vehicles for an all-day excursion starting and ending at a hotel in Ciudad Guzman.
Stay tuned for more information on this event.
