Hi, all!

Well, today was a little more productive, and we found Steve and Marion all
their targets! :-) Highlights included the continuing Rose-throated Becard,
Clay-colored Thrush, the Pauraque pair, and a White-tipped Dove (all at
Estero), McAllen Nature Center's Audubon's Oriole (and the leucistic
Cardinal), and Anzalduas' Sprague's Pipits! We spent the rest of the
afternoon chilling at Bentsen's feeders (but not before getting excited over
a "rare" butterfly that turned out to be an Orange Satyr Moth...)! A few
pics are on my Facebook page:
