Tufted Jay Preserve information

Especially worthwhile are Sendero México’s tours to the Tufted Jay Preserve , a nature resort located high in the mountains southeast of Mazatlán. You don’t have to be a birder to be enchanted by this beautiful enclave, created collaboratively in 2005 by the local community and the Mexican conservation group Pronatura to protect the lush habitat of this striking endemic bird – easily identified by its long tail, black bib and wings, and Mohawk-style hairdo. Day trips (M$1900) include hiking, bird-watching and optional horseback riding. Overnight visits (by arrangement with Sendero México) include accommodations in lantern-lit wooden cabins with kitchenette or in safari tents with wood stoves, flannel sheets and goose-down quilts.
