What a great list!!! I can never seem to get close enough, even with our binoculars to figure out what the bird is.....there are so many that are similar in size & color......I've figured out the flock of chacalacas, hummingbirds, etc. & we do have the same book you referenced. Good job!

Great list. Thanks.
I am particularly jealous of the owl.
I have been chasing them for a long time with no luck.
On the other hand I have been lucky enough to see spotted wrens, vermillion flycatchers and bluebirds.
Not much around today (early June) but I will be back to Casa Alvarada and my friend Jupiter has his ears open for new birds.

In the area you mention you can also see very common the White throated magpie jay,
Now you have made the list, we can update it with some photos. Saludos from Comala

I found a few things I forgot to list and I see that the Magpie-Jay is one of them - we saw them on the square in Nogueras This is one of those "wow" species like Motmots and Squirrel Cuckoos. Another one I forgot to list was Ruddy Ground-Dove. Thanks for the comment.
