Guide for birding in Oaxaca

I thought I saw this but can't find the thread it was on and nothing comes up when I do a search....so

I would like to know the name/names of a birding guide while I am in Oaxaca. Once I find one, how far in advance should I book.

thank you,

Roque Antonio is purportedly the best. Book ASAP, as soon as you have your travel dates. His info should be around the internet.

Are you going to the coast at all? We had a really enjoyable 4 or 5 hours in a little boat on the Laguna Manialtepec. We spotted about 40 species with our guide and we were only looking for water birds. It's a beautiful spot. Let me know if you are heading to the coast and I'll dig up the name of the fellow who took us there.

We contacted this family run business. They picked us up at our hotel in Puerto Escondido.

It was a perfect day.

We won't be on the coast this trip...and it is really too far for a day trip from Oaxaca....
