We decided to take a break from winter and booked a week at the Paradisus Resort in Los Cabos, Mexico. The Cabo Real Golf Club is adjacent to the resort and its fringes provided excellent birding. Not having been to this part of Mexico before, I wasn’t sure what to expect but I was hoping to photograph at least 50 species, one of which I hoped would be a Greater Roadrunner. There are several birding tours in the area but the trip was last minute and I wasn’t able to make suitable arrangements. My only regret was not allowing enough time at the Estuary and Bird Sanctuary in San Jose, which is a must when in the area. In the end, I managed to photograph a total of 64 species, 47 of which were found around the resort and golf course. The rest were taken at the Estuary and yes I did see my Roadrunner. It was the very last day of the trip, on the edge of the golf course as I was making my way back to the resort.
Here are some of the pictures I took.
