Parque Ecologico Chipinque: April 7, 2018

I haven't been birding much during the last month, and it's likely that I missed the northern migration.  The weather in northern Mexico is more like summer now than spring, with temperatures climbing into the nineties by noon. Thankfully, resident birds are still active and vocalizing throughout the morning. Today on the lower slopes of Chipinque, I ticked the Crimson-Collared Grosbeak, a lovely northeastern Mexico endemic. It took some effort, and a bit of playback, but I managed to photograph both male and female birds.

Notable birds seen: Turkey Vulture, Short-Tailed Hawk, Green Jay, Clay-Colored Thrush, Black-Crested Titmouse, Crimson-Collared Grosbeak, Hepatic Tanager, Wilson's Warbler, Rufous-Capped Warbler, Orange-Crowned Warbler.
