Good news for bird watchers in Cabo

If you are a bird lover, and a Cabo lover then life just got a whole lot better.


As part of the 23rd anniversary of the creation of Cabo’s famous ecological reserve -the Estero de San José del Cabo -  2 fantastic new bird watching towers have been created.


The whole idea of the towers is to provide an ideal, non -intrusive spot for people to observe the endemic and migratory birds. It is hoped the towers will encourage locals and kids to engage in more bird watching. And of course, to promote nature tourism in the area.


As many as 30 different species of birds can be seen in the San José sanctuary. And the new observation towers will allow everyone to see migratory birds like the blue ash heron, blue teal, white face ibis, American cockatiel, common coop, brown pelican, common red tailed hawk. And endemic birds like the peninsular mascarita, xantus hummingbird and peninsular cuitlacoche.


The project was a joint effort between 3 conservation organizations. The actual construction was done by a local team of 35 temporary employees. They did a fabulous job and completed everything in only 22 days!
