Birding the Sierra Gorda Biosphere, Mexico – Part Three

The Experienced Intermediate Birder

View from our cabaña

DAY FOUR – PUERTO DE RODEZNO AND PINAL DE AMOLES
We woke to another lovely, mountain vista from our cabaña, one of the Cabañas Terrazul. Breakfast was prepared for us before we wandered down the road and through the village of Puerto de Rodezno. Ana, who had been helping her mother with our meals, led us on the trails. She’s not a birder but she knows the spots and some of them are in her backyard. As soon as we left the main road for a brushy trail, the birds began to appear. Brown-backed Solitaires sang from high perches. We had good looks at a pair of Rufous-capped Brushfinch but they, like so many others, refused to pose for my camera. A Spotted Towhee sat still for a few minutes. I was able to photograph an Ivory-billed Woodcreeper. Spot-crowned Woodcreepers were plentiful and showed well.
