As usual, we will meet at the Reception Building and have binoculars and bird guides to share.

Many migrants have arrived in the past several weeks so we will look for them as well as whatever other beauties we can find.

Look forward to seeing you there!

Bird Walk Photo Challenge/Reto de Fotos en la Caminata

The San Vito Bird Club and the Pajareros del Sur have many excellent photographers, so let’s try something new on this next bird walk (Sunday, March 10th at the Sansonetti finca).

A Bird Walk Photo Challenge!  Here’s how it works:

  1. Each week, following the bird walk, we will review bird photographs taken during the walk. Photographers may offer a single photo for review.
  2. The very best photo taken during the walk will win a prize (something like a pastry from the bakery).  A panel of three non-photographers will make the selection.
  3. We will share that photo on the website!

Good luck and good shooting!
