There is a very good spot for birding in Central Veracruz that has been unnoticed by birders. Isleta Grande is a small village located a half hour from Xalapa.
To me, warblers are the most colorful and easily disturbed birds out there. In Mexico there are 64 species, and in the state of Veracruz (where I live), there are 55 migratory and resident species of warblers.
When you hear Veracruz mentioned, you may imagine a tropical forest, perhaps large lagoons, and of course, the raptor migration. Nevertheless, central Veracruz, where I live, has other things, including pine forest, cloud forest, tropical forest, and mangroves.
