Immerse yourself in the beautiful bird paradise of Baja California Peninsula, Mexico! In addition to the beautiful landscape, along these programs, you will enjoy watching seven endemic birds and many subspecies, residents, migrants, and vagrants, also other cultural and natural attractions present and handy during the bird program. With Birding Los Cabos, you can join the local birders and NGOs and everything will be led by local keen birders. In Baja California, expect the unexpected!
Due to the nature of the program, you will stay in a comfortable Mexican-style hotel with en-suite bathrooms, one or two beds, hot water shower, and air conditioning or heater.
Arrive on your own, check into the designated hotel and spread your wings. In the evening, you will enjoy a welcome dinner and attend the briefing.
Early in the morning, catch up a beautiful sunrise from the ocean and go in search of Belding's yellowthroat (Geothlypis beldingi). But, many more birds, such as warblers, sparrows and waterfowl will also be present. Then, get a free time - siesta time - because later you will go owling.
You will go from a sea level to almost 3,000 feet to enjoy Sierra La Laguna Biosphere Reserve in search of cape pygmy owl, San Lucas robin, and Baird's junco along with the subspecies such as the narrow-fronted acorn woodpecker, band-tailed pigeon with no band, lazuli and varied bunting among others.
Today, you will go to the deciduous forest - a semidesert area in search of Xantus's hummingbird (Hylocharis xantusii) and gray thrasher (Toxostoma cinereum). In addition, you will also have the chance to encounter raptors such as zone-tailed hawk, Swainson's hawk or Harris's hawk hosted by a ranchero family.
Today, you will enjoy least and black storm petrels, Craveri's murrelet, red-billed tropicbird, pink-footed and black-vented shearwaters, masked and Nazca bobbies, and perhaps other interesting birds like south polar skua among other marine life. You could also have an encounter with sea lions, manta rays, dolphins, or even sharks.
Today, your highlights will be Heermann's gull, endemic yellow-footed gull (Larus livens), along with many more gulls and terns such as elegant, royal, and Caspian fosterns and perhaps least tern. You will also visit the nesting blue-footed booby colony and more surprises such as the beautiful yellow mangrove warbler. By evening, you will have your farewell dinner.
You will have coffee and pastries and return home. Come back soon!
