Hi, all!

Took visiting birders Melanie and Jim around the Rio Grande parks for the
morning, starting at Bentsen with a Ringed Kingfisher and both species of
orange oriole! Couldn't flush a Sprague's Pipit at Anzalduas, but we did
have a nice Gray Hawk, a Red-crowned Parrot, and a singing Northern Parula
(had to track it down to make sure it wasn't a Tropical.)! A Carolina Wren
actually showed himself while singing at Santa Ana. Still working on
