We are moored in Marina Chahue and I am enjoying myself very much. There are great birding areas to walk to around the marina and I have already gotten 15 lifers. After the sad and anxious months spent at home last hurricane season, I really needed a place like this. Yesterday, I got in a bird wave and I didn't know where to look first! It was frustration at its most excellent. The climate is cooler and less buggy than Chiapas and we can walk to the grocery and restaurants. Unfortunately, I need to go back home for some medical tests. We are going back in a few days and hope to return February 9th.
A few locals:
West Mexican Chachalaca

Not an endemic or lifer but I just love this bird and since I am the editor, he gets his picture put up.
Isn't he something?
