I was in Fulton at daybreak to see the Broad-billed Hummingbird, and he showed up for about 5 minutes. Having bagged that bird quickly, I headed to Refugio with more than expected time to find the Warbler. I took 35 to FM 774, although it was not the best of roads it yielded numerous wildlife. Along the road I saw probably 40 whitetail, many raptors, coyote, and a wild hog eating on a dead cow. If you are into photography, it may be worth checking out, most animals were led than 60 feet away.
I was not able to locate, along with many other biders, the Golden-crowned Warbler. I tried for roughly 3 hours in the drizzle. I had another obligation to make so I was forced to leave at 11, by then the sun was coming out and birds began moving. Probably would be a good bet that it'll be out this afternoon.
