We'll meet in front of the Policia Federal (on the street behind the Pemex) in Patzcuaro at 9:00 AM and head to Zarzamora. If anyone in Eronga is planning to join us and needs a ride, let me know. If you're coming around the north end of the lake, let me know and I'll figure out a place to rendezvous in Eronga. Antep9@aol.com

This is an easy uphill walk through a forest. My last visit to the area was a hike - this time we'll look for birds. Count on 2-3 hours in the woods.
We'll be on the lookout for this species: Pygmy nuthatch (Sitta pygmaea)
Afterwards those interested and hungry may join me for lunch at the pizza-baguette-torta restaurant on Eronga's square. The proprietors are Cristal and Mariano. She's one of the daughters of the owner of Campestre Aleman restaurant. The menu has lots to offer, the food is delicious and reasonably priced, and service is friendly and prompt.
