Hi, all!
This morning we poked around the Cannon Road Loop, with some great
grasspiper activity at the Weaver Road Sod Farms with both Buff-breasted and
Pectoral Sandpipers being highlights! Groove-billed Anis were a hit along
the NWR tracts, and we had a lovely Blue Grosbeak in one of the cotton
fields! Had a White-tailed Kite and a Wood Stork along Jimenez, and didn't
have enough time to thoroughly check Rangerville Resaca, but a bunch of
Stilt Sandpipers were nice. Some pics are on my Facebook page:
