Birding in South Texas


South Texas is in the migratory path for a wife variety of birds.  So, there are many birding areas, well known for excellent bird viewing.  Today we stopped for a few hours at Estrello Llano Grande, in Mercedes, TX.  Here are some pictures taken on our walk.  Good thing Romola was there to identify all these birds!
