Birds of bright plumages and diverse songs have fascinated humanity through our history. Some have inspired symbols of freedom, wisdom, strength, fertility, and cunning.
The Yucatán peninsula is home to a great biodiversity of species that make of this region a privileged site with great potential to the scientific community as well as to birdwatchers.
Birdwatchers, both professional and amateur, have the opportunity to observe over 543 bird species throughout the year; this number represents 50 percent of all the birds that have been recorded in Mexico.
Yucatán State offers a mix of cultural and biological diversity that result in unique experiences for many birdwatchers.
In their travels throughout the Yucatán, John Lloyd Stephens and Frederick Catherwood were impressed by the abundance of birds.
Casa Catherwood invites you join us by participating in many of the birdwatching activities available in the Yucatán, particularly the TOH BIRD FESTIVAL that takes place every year.
