Mexico features some of the best birding locations on the North American continent. Here, you can find a diversity of tropical and subtropical species such as hummingbirds, trogons, macaws, parrots, vultures, toucans, motmots, and quetzals. Classic sites in Mexico include Oaxaca, El Triunfo Biosphere Reserve, Colima, Jalisco, and Cabo San Lucas in Nyarit. Plan a trip to Copper Canyon for Eared Quetzals or travel to the world-famous Veracruz to observe the truly awe-inspiring "River of Raptors," one of the greatest natural phenomena on the planet. Geography and favorable winds have been known to condense as many as 4.5 million raptors over Veracruz during a single migration season.
