Good morning Texbirders, a group of 3 joined us for a walk. Even with a
cool, overcast morning they enjoyed seeing a good selection of south Texas
birds, many of them lifers! The mixed flocks of passerines picked up as
the sun came out. See our list below.
Birdwalks daily at 8:30AM except for Sunday.
