Rio Grande Valley Birding Festival: Saturday
The bus left Harlingen's municipal auditorium at the leisurely hour of 8 a.m. After a productive stop with views of Wood Stork, Black Vulture, White-tailed Hawk and Northern Harrier followed by a great stop with Belted Kingfisher, Tricolored Heron and Pied-billed Grebe, the bus reached Laguna Atascosa National Wildlife Refuge. I felt quite content to watch the Green Jays at the visitor center's feeding stations.
The baby javelina provided some amusement, too. See it in front of the table's right leg? (As always, click on an image to see a larger version.)
