A tour designed for those who want to go birding the whole day. Starting at Merida’s best birding hotspots where we'll be able to find birds like the Limpkin (Aramus guarauna), Snail Kite (Rosthramus sociabilis) and Yucatan Jays (Cyanocorax yucatanicus), continuing at one of Yucatan’s favourite birding places, where we will see a combination of pastures and tropical low forest, expected birds are the Black-throated Bobwhite (Colinus nigrogularis), Gray-throated Chat (Granatellus sallaei), Yucatan Flycatcher (Myiarchus yucatanensis), among many others. We will make a stop around 12:00 noon to have lunch and rest a little so we can head to our last stop, the north coast of the state, where we are going to be looking at lots of waterbirds including American Flamingos (Phoenicopterus ruber) and searching for the endemic Mexican Sheartail (Doricha eliza), Yucatan Wren (Campylorhynchus yucatanicus) and the Yucatan Gnatcatcher (Polioptila albiventris).
