A Miscellany from the Rio Grande

I think this miscellany will wrap up (for now) my postings from our trip to southern Texas and the Rio Grande Valley Birding Festival.

from Laguna Atascosa NWR - Great Blue Heron (Willet in background) ...

from South Padre Island WBC - Tricolored Heron ...

... and Caspian Tern ...

from the waters off Port Isabel - Brown Pelicans in formation ...

from City Lake in Harlingen - Double-crested Cormorant ...

... and an American Coot telling you, "That's the tail end" ... at least for now.

Good Birding!
