Good afternoon birders!
This morning's walk was great fun, especially for several participants who are new to Valley birding, seeing their first Verdin, Black-crested Titmouse, Green Jay, Ruddy Duck, Inca Dove and Common Pauraque. What fun to share these specialties.
Bird walks begin daily at the Santa Ana NWR Visitor's Center at 8:30 am. What a lovely place to view the natural beauty of the Rio Grande Valley.
