We were told there was a rainy season here. Being Seatteites, we thought we were prepared. Yesterday (July 9, 2008) taught us a new lesson. At El Estribo, a wonderful vantage point to view Patzcuaro and the Lake, Chuck (my husband) and I met three other birders for what was to be a climb from the gazebo to the top of the hill. While introducing ourselves, we watched the rain come our way. Within a few minutes, a downpour determined our next step: no bird outing.
The only bird seen and heard was a Cassin's kingbird.
