What a shame. I visited Salineno several times back in the 80s and 90s, and was fortunate to see several "lifers" there. I would say more, but I do not want to offend on this site. Be happy to provide my thoughts offline. Jay KaplanCanton

Yes, a sad day among many along the border. Don't know if I've been to that site, but have heard of it. And still need the Audubon's:-) Andrew Andrew v. F. Block Consulting Naturalist 20 Hancock Avenue, Apt. 3 Yonkers, Westchester Co., New York 10705-4780 www.flickr.com/photos/conuropsis/albums

A sad loss. My wife and I visited Salineno in 2008, and Chris saw her first (and so far only) Audubon’s Oriole there.

RE: The Salineno birding spot along the Rio Grande in Texas has been sold to the Army Corps Of Engineers in conjunction with the building of the border wall. For those of us that were fortunate enough to visit this great birding spot be thankful you had the opportunity to visit it. What a shame.
