Birding Adventures in and Around

Mexico City


Star Posada


















We are excited to have our annual dinner meeting again this year, our first since 2020!  Our presentation will be by our board member Star Posada.  She will share about her recent birding trip to Mexico City with the group Accipiters Birding CDMX and PAU Ecatepec. Star will discuss Accipiters Birding's Conservation Mission in the Sierra de Guadalupe mountain range as well as all the birds that were seen during the trip. Some of the places visited were Apaxco, Tequixquiac, Atenco, Bosque de San Juan de Aragon and the Sierra de Guadalupe.


Here are the details for the event:


From 6:00-6:30 will be a social half hour. Dinner will begin at 6:30 with the program starting at 7:00.


The food will be Italian-themed from Olive Garden and will be served buffet style for you to select what you wish to eat. This will include two pastas (spaghetti and fettuccine), three sauces (Alfredo, beef/Italian sausage meat sauce, and marinara), three toppings (grilled chicken, meatballs, and Italian sausage), house salad, breadsticks.

The dinner cost is $20.  Reservation deadline is February 2. We need to receive your checks by this date.  Please send your reservation with a check made out to the El Paso/Trans-Pecos Audubon Society (EPTPAS) to:

     Eddie Chew
     390 Flemish Circle
     El Paso, Texas 79912

So that we can order the proper amounts of each item, please let us if you will be choosing vegetarian marinara, grilled chicken, meatballs, or Italian sausage for your pasta entrée.


Please note that we will not be able to stream this presentation via Zoom due to technical limitations.  Zoom-available meetings will resume in March.
