Birding Site Guide

This is a breeding site for the endangered Thick-billed Parrot. It is close to the town of Madera which is 5hrs by bus from Chihuahua city. Madera only has a few hotels. The cheapest one seemed to be closed and the cheapest place we could then find was N$270. A bus leaves Madera for Huaracan at 06.00 and passes Ejido Socorro Rivera. From the turn off it is another couple of km up into the village which is just a group of poor houses. You get dropped off in the dark so bring a torch and warm clothes. I followed the track through the village and carried on towards the hills. This is an old logging trail. I failed to see the parrots and they may have already flown s. 30 species including 9 lifers.
