When conducting research for the blog on Barb’s great Rubber Ducky Race in July, the rather creative term for a group of ducks, “a paddling” (along with several others as in the headline above), got us wondering how much fun it would be to see what words our imaginative ancestors came up with to describe groups of other animals. And sure enough, it was certainly an interesting delve into history, conflict and clever interpretation dating, in some cases, back to the 16th century…
Living in a tropical area on the sea as we do here in Puerto Peñasco, the hobby of birding can become quite addictive. That’s because out of the nearly 10,000 species of birds on the planet; nearly 10% are endemic to Mexico. In addition, hundreds upon hundreds of species migrate here as “winter visitors” each fall and remain as our fair weather feathered friends until spring.
Colors of Mexico This is a country of heart And it has been since the start
With bright colors everywhere you look Like crayons in a coloring book
Of the more than 10,000 known species of birds in the world, Mexico is known and appreciated as host to over 10% of that total. There are several locales around this beautiful country where bird watching opportunities can number in the hundreds of species. But there may be none so accessible or more abundant in species as found in the Morua Estuary, just a few hours’ drive from Arizona, Nevada, Southern California and New Mexico.
