Once again, it was an early start from our hotel as we headed to the southern area of the state of Guanajuato. We looked forward to some wetland birding along the shore of Lake Yuriria. Our drive took us through a broad valley of lush agricultural lands ringed by distant mountains. We met Jose Ojeda Orranti outside a school on the edge of the wetland. Jose is an Environmental Services Expert and works for the Environmental Ministry of Guanajuato as coordinator of the Natural Protected Area of Yuriria. He also runs a statewide research program that studies the Golden Eagle. He’s an excellent birder and was good company.
The birding was very good. A combination of a bad cold and my indifferent photography skills produced a rather skimpy selection of photographs but I managed a few highlights.
