Our friends live just outside Ajijic going west towards Jocotepec. Last night they heard the first rain birds of the season.
Rain birds are not acutally birds but are large insects that herald the rainy season will be here in 6 weeks.
This is always very welcome news and it is always very exciting to hear the first rain birds. This year April has been a beautiful month and the weather has been fantastic. Very often April and May can be a little hot and dusty as we all eagerly await the rains and the most beautiful season of the year here in Ajijic, Lake Chapala, the “Rainy Season”.
Most of the snow birds have headed back north and I always think it is a shame that they do not get to experience this amazing time of year from June 15th to October 15th.
