I went over to Anzalduas County Park to get a few things for my 2008 Hidalgo County yearlist. This Zone-tailed Hawk was a nice surprise. It had been seen several weeks earlier.
Gray Hawks nest every summer at Anzalduas. Here's a juvenal plumaged bird.
The American Bittern was still present in the pond at the entrance to the park.
There was also a Black Phoebe, Eastern Bluebird, Blue-headed Vireo, Pine Warbler and this guy.
A Burrowing Owl has returned to nearby Ganjeno for the third year in a row.
