Birdwatching in Alamos - Birdwatching Alamos - Mexico

Alamos is popular among birders due to its location: it borders the world’s northernmost tropical deciduous forest to the south and the Sonora desert to the north. It’s also not far (about an hour and a half) from the Sea of Cortés, where several species of marine birds can be spotted. This stark contrast is great for birders, and more than 400 species are known in the area, including the Rufus-bellied Chachalaca, the Blue-Rumped Parrallet, the Russet-Crowned Motmot and the Purplish-backed Jay. The pleasant, mild climate is a big plus. Birders visiting Alamos will want to stop in at the Café del Sol, a restaurant operated by a birdwatching tour company and something of a birder hangout.

Several agencies in town offer birdwatching trips: the most reputable is probably Solipaso at Calle Obregon #3.
