Subject: [texbirds] Tuesday Bird Walk at the Edinburg Scenic Wetlands
Nice morning out at the wetlands today! Slightly windy, but still a good
time to take a walk through the gardens to compile a bird list. It was a
bit quiet, even the Green Kingfisher did not make an appearance while we
were at North Pond Overlook. But, we did get to see a pair of Green Herons
carrying nesting material! And, we heard a Carolina Wren by the picnic
table area currently under construction. Below is this morning's list:
