Parque Ecologico Chipinque: February 5, 2017

Admittedly, I haven't been birding as much as I should; however, the winter has been unusually cold in northern Mexico this year. The city of Monterrey has even been dusted with snow a few times, hardly the type of birding conditions I expected when I moved to Mexico last summer. Whenever I do make it up into the pine-oak forests of Parque Ecologico Chipinque though, I always encounter a few birds of interest, regardless of the time of day. Plus, the clamshell ridgeline above the park is a marvel to hike under. Here a Black-Crested Titmouse pauses briefly while foraging on a chilly late afternoon. 

Notable birds seen: Elegant Trogon, Blue-Crowned Motmot, Mexican Jay, Bridled Titmouse, Black-Crested Titmouse, Carolina Wren, Ruby-Crowned Kinglet, Hermit Thrush, Black-Throated Green Warbler, Wilson's Warbler, Painted Redstart, Rufous-Capped Warbler,
