Occupation Birding Guide
Location San Blas, Nayarit, Mexico
Introduction Birding has been my passion since I was 5 years old - I can’t even remember a time when I wasn’t birding. I have enjoyed watching birds throughout the Americas, and especially like to share the beauty of birds and nature with other people through teaching and guiding birders, and, through my photography. I led my first birding tour when I was 16, and now have been guiding birding tours for over 35 years, including 15 years in Mexico. I also work seasonally as a biologist at Utah’s largest ranch, and also guide birders there, as I have for 18 years. I fell in love with Mexico, its people, culture, landscapes, and of course its spectacular birding, on my first trip to San Blas 15 years ago. I now live in this birder’s paradise with my wife, Elizabeth Oregón Gonzalez, a native of San Blas. I look forward to sharing the birding wonders of this special place with you.
