Parque Ecologico Chipinque: September 24, 2017

I haven't yet visited Parque Ecologico Chipinque in the morning, but my Sunday afternoon routine is proving productive enough. Typically, I ascend from the entrance gate to the lookout on foot along one of the several trails that wind up the mountains. The oak and pine trees provide some shade, and I often find a few mixed flocks despite the mid-afternoon heat. Then, I'll catch the early evening bird activity while descending along the main road, where the visibility is much better. Highlights have included Acorn Woodpecker, Audubon's Oriole, Elegant Trogon, and Brown-Backed Solitaire. I've also been delighted by the occasional New World warbler, including Wilson's Black-and-White, and Black-Throated Green Warblers.

Notable birds seen: Turkey Vulture, Red-Tailed Hawk, Broad-Billed Hummingbird, Acorn Woodpecker, Mexican Jay, Black-Crested Titmouse, Carolina Wren, Blue-Grey Gnatcatcher, Blue-Headed Vireo, Hutton's Vireo, Brown-Backed Solitaire, Clay-Colored Thrush, Black-Throated Green Warbler, Black-and-White Warbler, Wilson's Warbler, Painted Redstart, Rufous-Capped Warbler, Hepatic Tanager, Audubon's Oriole.
