John and Rosemary are taking over the tasks of managing Los Audubonistas.
Many of us have known John and Rosemary for several years as "lead birders" on several of our outings. They are lifelong birders and are great finders of good birding sites.
We invite you to welcome John and Rosemary and to continue with them the pleasures and rewards of Birding Mexico's largest lake.
Allen y Judy
Adios y hasta luego.
We have enjoyed our four years of birding with you at Lake Chapala and will be moving, in July, to our mountain retreat high (8,500 ft) in the Andes Mountains of Southern Ecuador. Judy will be teaching English in Cuenca while we also prepare our birding hacienda in the Yunguilla Valley at 5000 ft. The hacienda is two hours from the Continental Divide and the Pacific Coast.-- in opposite directions, of course. And, when it is ready, you are invited to stay with us as you explore the over 1,500 species of birds of Ecuador--inclluding over 100 species of hummingbirds! We will send details of how to get there later. Meanwhile, you may email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We are pleased to welcome our new Host and Hostess for Birding Lake Chapala. John and Rosemary Keeling will be inviting us all to the coming season of birding Lake Chapala. They will continue the tradition of bird walks and the Christmas Bird Count.
So join us in welcoming our new Birding Hosts.
Allen y Judy.
Monday May 18, 2009 Bird Walk 8.30 a.m. Christiania Park Chapala
Please join us May 18. Our leader will be John Keeling. We will seek birds along the park shoreline and among the extensive trees in the park. After, we will meet for breakfast at Mom's Deli in Riberas del Pilar, and share our sightings.
Don't forget to bring your binoculars (if you have them), and it helps to have a printout of the Lake Chapala Checklist.
Driving to Christiania Park: From Ajijic go to Chapala. At the main traffic light, go straight to the end of the road, then turn left and park on your right.
