Erik Breden and I led a trip to Bentsen State Park and Anzalduas County Park today. The weather was cloudy much of the day but almost no rain!! With such good weather we had talked about going to a couple of additional areas, but we spent quite a bit of time haunting the two spots at Bentsen where the Bare-throated Tiger-Heron had been seen, but had no sightings (it's now been three days since a sighting). Birding was quite good for the regulars there (Clay-colored Thrush, Altamira Oriole, Green Jay, etc.)plus Least Grebe, Nashville Warbler. At Anzalduas there were even more warblers than yesterday (Black-and-white, Black-throated Gray, Black-throated Green, Palm, Pine, Yellow-rumped)plus Northern Beardless-Tyrannulet, Green Kingfisher, Lesser Goldfinch. I'm looking forward to birding Weslaco tomorrow. This has been a great TOS meeting so far!
