Our time in South Texas has come to an end.  On Friday, we had back to the Dallas area.  While we are looking forward to seeing friends and family, we’ll miss the friends we made in Southern Texas.  We’ll miss the food, and especially the world class birding.  We visited three of the major sites (Bentsen World Bird Refuge, Santa Anna Bird National Sanctuary, and Estero Grande Below is an album of some of the birds we saw.
