San Pancho Bird Observatory

Puerto Vallarta • Riviera Nayarit 


San Pancho Bird Observatory (Luis Bienteveo)

The San Pancho Bird Observatory is dedicated to provide environmental education and training on birds and nature for local children and youth in the village of San Francisco (San Pancho), Nayarit, and surrounding area.

Luis Morales with his wife, Wendy Pasco, and their two children arrived in San Pancho in the summer of 2007 with a vision and dream to start "an open and inclusive community birdwatching project that included locals as well as foreign residents as well from all ages and paths of life."

Very soon after, their dream and idea gave birth to the San Pancho Birding Club which offers the service of bird-watching education and training to the locals and residents in San Pancho and the surrounding villages, helping to educate people about local birds and nature.

Since its conception, the Birding Club has had the opportunity to work with some local San Pancho teenagers and children educating them on birds and nature.

He has also collaborated with the elementary school in Sayulita, which has helped get the word out about the club. "I want to open the club up to anyone in San Pancho and the surrounding area so they can learn about the birds and so I can learn from them about their expertise on birds, trees, and nature in general."

One important duty the San Pancho Bird Observatory does is to provide a record of the migratory flow of birds in the area to governmental authorities for conservation and environmental services. The club is also putting together a library of bird and nature sounds with professional equipment.

The Birding Club is always looking for new members to share the joy of feeling and learning about nature together. San Pancho residents can become part of the club by participating in the tours or inquiring about a membership directly with Luis.

You can also donate books or binoculars, or even stories of your own experiences in bird watching or submit any questions to Luis directly to learn more about the birds you are hearing or seeing in your backyard.

Please contact Luis Morales to find out more about possible ways to participate and contribute to the San Pancho Bird Observatory.

Birding San Pancho

As part of our commitment to the local community, Birding San Pancho promotes environmental education activities and birdwatching training with local community members; we also participate in local and regional conservation projects and other initiatives oriented to create sustainability.

Luis Morales is the director and founder of the San Pancho Birding Club and more recently of his own family owned company Birding San Pancho, now named San Pancho Bird Observatory.

During his last 5 years living in San Pancho, Nayarit, where he lives year-round with his wife and kids, Luis has become not only a frequent and avid observer of the local birds and fauna but also an educational resource for the local community and an environmental activist to help preserving and restoring natural habitats.

Luis is a Marine Biologist with over ten years of experience leading nature tours. Luis has been leading birdwatching tours in the coast of Jalisco and Nayarit for the past 8 years; during this time he has shared his love, knowledge and enthusiasm for birds and the natural world with world-class ornithologists as well as amateur and beginner birders.

Luis actively participates in local and regional conservation programs including the regional Jalisco-Nayarit Military Macaw Conservation Program and he has developed the San Pancho Bird Observatory.
