Mexico

I am just back from a very enjoyable 3 weeks in Southern Mexico with Jon Hornbuckle, Brian Foster and Rod Martins and expertly guided by Eric Antonio Martinez of Mexico-Birding Tours (http://mexico-birding.com/). We had a great time seeing most of our target species. It will take me quite some time to update this blog so here are a few to be getting on with:
our main target species was a bird with a funny hat ...
sadly too slow crossing the road, the only Lesser Roadrunner seen
Tiger Heliconia, one of several spectacular butterflies 
Resplendent Quetzal
Hog-nosed Skunk, the best mammal photographed
Wood Thrush, one of many wintering migrants from further north
a wanderer
endemic Bridled Sparrow
hummingbirds were well represented, this one is White-eared
resident warblers such as this Red one were outnumbered by wintering visitors
more colourful than 'Old World' buntings
