Our monthly birdwalks take place the 3rd Sunday of every month and are open to all birders, beginning and
experienced alike. Join our expert birders who will help you to explore and know the birds of San Miguel. We bird in locations along the Rio Laja or other riverside habitat, where the diversity of birds is greatest and the changing beauty of the countryside delights.
We’re happy to arrange private birdwalks to suit your schedule and interests.

If you are interested in purchasing Audubon de México’s bird guide, Birds of San Miguel — covering 81 species commonly found in the San Miguel area — it will be available for 80 pesos.
We recommend comfortable, sturdy walking shoes, sunscreen and a hat. Bring water and a snack too. Binoculars and camera if you have them. Our guides will have binoculars to lend and spotting scopes for closely viewing the birds.
We carpool to the site, departing the Instituto promptly at 8 am and returning about noon. If you have a car, we would appreciate your help in providing transportation.
