My journeys in Mexico are limited as follows: one month in the Yucatan Peninsula in 2014 (to include a side trip to Chiapas); a month in Oaxaca in 2012; a three-week trip to Jalisco and Colima in the mid-1980’s; two-weeks in Jalisco during 2017; and several trips to Chihuahua and Sinaloa over the last few years (this being written in mid-2018).  These trips afforded me a variety of human cultural and natural history experiences, which are captured in the pages dedicated to the individual states.

I do not have a general travel video on Mexico.  Instead,  videos for many of the locations listed below, can be found on those specific pages. 

The Birds of Mexico video portfolio has video of individual bird species and The Birds of Mexico photo gallery includes species from all over the nation.  At the bottom of this page you will find a listing (with links) to images (video & photograph) of bird species I have recorded in Mexico.  To the right is a framegrab from the video of a Collared Aracari, recorded in Chicanná, Campeche, Mexico.

Volume One of The Birds of Mexico is embeded below.  It is 57 minutes long and includes the following species:  Velasquez’s Woodpecker, Limpkin, Western Kingbird, Brown-backed Solitaire, Ocellated Thrasher, White-throated Towhee, Dwarf Vireo, Rufous-capped Warbler, Spotted Woodcreeper, Great Kiskadee, Great-tailed Grackle, Black-and-white Warbler, Northern Jacana, Great Egret, Yellow-throated Warbler, Pied-billed Grebe, Anhinga, Tropical Mockingbird, American Flamingo, Brown Pelican, American White Pelican, Snowy Egret, Wood Stork, Altamira Oriole, Cordilleran Flycatcher, Black Phoebe, Keel-billed Toucan, Yellow-throated Vireo, Gray Catbird, Yucatan Jay, and Boat-billed Flycatcher.

Volume Two of the Birds of Mexico is embeded below.   It is 47 minutes in duration and includes the following species; Social Flycatcher, Black-cowled Oriole, Greyish Saltator, Black-headed Saltator, Collared Aracari, Melodious Blackbird, Grey-necked Wood-Rail, Black Vulture, Red-billed Pigeon, Yellow-throated Euphonia, Clay-colored Robin, Tropical Kingbird, Masked Tityra, Rose-throated Becard, Bat Falcon, Mexican Antthrush, Hooded Warbler, Brown Jay, White-winged Dove, and Olive-throated Parakeet.

Volumes 3 - 9 are embeded on the Jalisco page since the material included in those videos was recorded in that state.

These journeys, as depicted on the map below, are diverse enough to warrant their own pages on this website, follow the links below or in the drop-down boxes in the navigation bar.
