Early Photos from Rio Grande

We had our first day along the Rio Grande, mainly at Santa Ana NWR - a delightful way to begin our birding with the Rio Grande Valley Bird Festival, which begins tomorrow. First, a few of the southern Texas specialties:

Green Jay ....

Great Kiskadee ...

Buff-bellied Hummingbird ....

Least Grebe ....

and a White Pelican, not a Texas specialty, but not a bird seen in Vermont ...

Good Birding!!
