Subject: [texbirds] Golden-cheecked Warbler on South Padre Island 7/17
Hello Texbirders,

Yesterday (7/17) i was lucky to find and get a snapshot of a Golden-cheeked
Warbler at the South Padre Island Birding & Nature Center. A very rare bird
in Cameron county with only a handful of records with two previous ones in
July. July seems like the window to get lucky with a wandering one along
the southern tip of the Texas coastline as they move to Mexican
non-breeding grounds. The bird was very active and I quickly lost it and
couldn't refind it. a few others searched for it with no luck.

Here's a link to my iNaturalist observation.

I also spotted a Black-and-White Warbler, migration is on its way!

Best of birding to everyone,
Javi Gonzalez
