Places and Things:


I, Eva, the author of this page, am not a birder. The people I was with are. I personally saw (as opposed to heard) about 142 avian species on this trip. There were quite a few times the others saw birds that I missed despite my companions' patient help, but not being a birder, those misses did not frustrate me. The union of what the group "got" (heard counts) is about 200 species over 9 days on the ground in Mexico. I got recognizable photographs of about 90 avian species. So I photographed about 63% of what I personally saw, and about 45% of what the group "got." The group consisted of four people March 8 and 9 in the marshes (We stayed at the Best Western Maya Tabasco in Villahermosa), and just my husband Herman and me in a rental car staying at Chan Kah near Palenque March 10-16. Saturday March 10 was spent mainly picking up the rental car, travelling on major roads to Palenque, finding a late lunch, getting settled, and going to Mass (interesting!).
