Chiapas and Oaxaca, Mexico July 2015

From July 11-23, 2015, Sheridan and I spent four days in the central Chiapas area as part of the GBNA biennial meeting, and then a week in south/central Oaxaca as part of a private group, ably organized and lead by Michael Retter.

These Bat Falcons Falco rufigularis petoensis make a living picking off Green Parakeets that breed/roost by the hundreds in the impressive sink hole of Sima de las Cotorras, west of Tuxtla Gutierrez, Chiapas.

The sink hole (cenote, or sima); the falcons are perched just below the largest vertical white encrustation in the upper center of this image:
