Birding

Barra de Potosi and the surrounding area offer wonderful opportunities for birders.  Every December a contingent of serious birders from the US and various parts of Mexico come here to participate in the Annual Audubon Bird Count on December 14.  That is a birder tradition that dates back to the early 1900s and the Barra area is one of the few annual counts in Mexico. If you are interested in participating, contact Laurel Patrick at laurel@elrefugiodepotosi.org.  But birds are here all year round.

Below is an excerpt from a guide to birding in Guerrero by Nick Lethaby and Brad Waggoner.  Following that is a  spreadsheet of the species sighted during the most recent annual December Audubon Bird Count.  (164 different species in one day is a lot of birds).

The best way to track down the feathered beauties is with a local guide. Check the Enjoying Nature page for a list of guides and their contact information.

 

Birding Guerrero, Mexico: The Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo Area
and the Sierra Madre del Sur

Missing: Most thorn forest species
Account by Nick Lethaby, just five visits to this site
A good and relatively close area for wetland species, seabirds, and hummingbirds is
Barra de Potosi, about 20 KM SE of Ixtapa. To get here, take the main highway (Route
200) south out of Zihuatanejo and turn right in the village of Los Achotes.
There are four
main areas to consider birding here. There are hotels here and a great selection of seafood
restaurants, as well as a beautiful long beach. This is nice location for those who prefer to
experience a more authentic Mexican vacation. The village of Barra de Potosi lies at the
end of the road.
There is an annual Christmas Bird Count held here around Dec 14 each year, which
offers a good way to meet other birders and learn what is around.
The ‘Gallinule Pond’ at Los Llanitos
As you drive from Los Achotes to Barra de Potosi, you will see a shallow pond on your
right about 2 KM from the turnoff from Route 200. This typically holds water until
around early spring and is a good location to stop. Northern Jacana and Common
Gallinule are here and there is usually a Purple Gallinule as well. Other birds include
Sora, Black-bellied Whistling Duck, and White-faced Ibis.
Rufugio de Potosi
The Refugio de Potosi, founded by Laurel Patrick to increase awareness of the
environment and local wildlife. The Refugio has exhibits featuring some of local wildlife
species, including rehabilitated and injured individuals. The Refugio has fruit, seed, and
hummingbird feeders as well as an artificial pond and stream that attract many of the
local species. For details, visit the website at www.elrefugiodepotosi.org. Currently
(2015), the Refugio is closed to visitors, but birders should contact Laurel Patrick by email
(lmpatrick@gorge.net or laurel@elrefugiodepotosi.org ) to arrange access to the
Refugio. Laurel can also arrange access to Carrizo Lagoon.
The hummingbird feeders offer a good opportunity to see a number of the local
hummingbird species, although numbers can be very low in early winter (Nov-Dec) and
occasionally throughout the winter:
Plain-capped Starthroat: This species is common from early April to late October or early
November. Up to 50 can occur at the feeders at once. They are completely absent from
November through March period both at the feeders and the rest of the Ixtapa area.
Cinnamon Hummers: Common year round at feeders.
Doubleday’s and Broad-billed Hummingbirds: Common year round but females are
absent from approximately mid-June until about October. I believe I had males of both
forms during an early April visit, as one bird was noticeably bluer (including forehead,
crown, and underparts) but failed to verify whether it was also one of the birds that had
white undertail coverts as at least two other males had. If both occur, the exact temporal
distribution is currently unknown and should be studied by anyone visiting.
Green-breasted Mangos: Very uncommon but regular through from mid-August to midOctober,
sometimes later. No more than 1-2 birds at the feeders at a time. Both males and
females are seen though the males arrive first. Occasionally seen in about mid to late
April.
Green-fronted Hummingbird: Very uncommon but regular throughout the year with up to
3 at a time. This species is somewhat more regular during the dry months from
November through April.
Golden-crowned Emerald: Very uncommon but regular throughout the year with up to 3
at a time. This species is somewhat more regular in the wet season.
Black-chinned and Ruby-throated Hummingbirds: Abundant from December through to
the end of March. In my early April visit, the only males I saw were Ruby-throated so
this species may linger later.
Other species regularly attracted to the fruit and seed feeders or to bathe and drink
include West Mexican Chachalacas (very confiding here), Golden-Cheeked, Pale-Billed,
and Lineated Woodpeckers, White Throated Magpie-Jay, Rufous-naped Wren, buntings,
Yellow Grosbeak, and Yellow-winged Cacique. Lesser Ground-cuckoos are typically
secretive but seen regularly either on the ground or in the lower bushes on the paths
(especially by the Heloderma) and around the little house.
The pond and stream are especially attractive to bathing and drinking birds towards the
end of day bath when the recirculation pump has been turned off and there are little
pools. Belted, Ringed, Green, and, very rarely, Amazon Kingfishers show up most days
around the pond or sometimes on the wires.
Carrizo Lagoon
Immediately by the entrance to the Refugio de Potosi, a large freshwater lagoon known
as Carrizo Lagoon is visible from the road (and also from the watch tower in the
Refugio). This often holds large numbers of herons (including Boat-billed), Wood Stork,
Roseate Spoonbill, White and White-faced Ibises, Anhinga, American White Pelican,
ducks, shorebirds, and terns, depending on the water levels (highest in November and
then dropping lower into the spring, when good for shorebirds). This lagoon proved a
good spot for kingfishers (Ringed, Green, and Amazon) and shorebirds, including a
Collared Plover and several Northern Jacanas, on an early April visit. To get good looks
at the birds, you need to walk down through the fields to access the lakeside. I did this
and had no problems. Alternately you can ask if Laurel Patrick can arrange access.
Laguna de Potosi
This is a large shallow seasonally (Oct-Mar) intertidal lagoon that holds waders,
shorebirds, gulls, terns, and kingfishers. I have done hour long kayak trips twice and
found them limited in effect due to the size of the lagoon and running aground in the
shallows. However, you can see Ringed and Green Kingfishers and various waders
(Bare-throated Tiger-Heron has apparently been seen occasionally) this way. It might be
better to try a boat up the lagoon although that will be limited by the shallow water as to
how close it can get to the birds. If you are capable of enduring a long kayak session
under the sun, you might enjoy more success.
It is possible to drive or walk into the channels and mangroves areas on the N. side of the
lagoon (called Las Salinas) but I would not recommend this without a local guide and it is
not possible to see very large concentrations of birds.
Roca de Potosi
These offshore rocks are also known simply as “Los Morros”. They are not visible
directly from the village due to the headland but you can take a boat out to look around
them. In 2017, the boat trip cost MX$1500. The boatman’s first name is Arturo and can
be contacted by going to the restaurant called the Enramada Leticia in Potosi.
The rocks have a huge (thousands) Brown Booby colony along with smaller numbers
(many dozens) of Red-billed Tropicbirds, Bridled Terns, and Brown Noddies. The terns
are generally not present until into April. At least in winter, careful checking of the
boobies should reveal a few Masked and Blue-footed Boobies. I saw both of these on my
December trip, along with many displaying tropic birds.
