TexBirders,
Today (01/03/18) myself and 4 others birded the Santa Gertrudis division of King Ranch in western Kleberg county. Despite the very chilly temperatures and a rather stiff morning breeze we still managed to find a few birds. The highlights included Say's Phoebe, Cave Swallow, and Sprague's Pipit. Further below is the overall list of birds encountered on this outing.

Good birding,
