Bird
Watching

The Ixtapa Zihuatanejo area has recorded more than 320 different species of birds (that’s almost a third of the country's total!). This region is booming with so much wildlife, both native and migratory that it is considered one of the places with the greatest biodiversity in Mexico.

Of the species that can be observed in the area, approximately half are residents and the other half are migratory. Among the most common resident birds are: the black-winged stilt, the magpie, the brown spring, the magnificent frigatebird, the aura, the green heron, the cormorant, chachalacas, parakeets, white ibis, brown boobies, golden-foot heron and the cardinal.

Some migratory birds you can catch a glimpse of are the white pelican, the blue heron, the roseate spoonbill, boat-billed heron, anhinga, spoonbill, and the stork.
