Anzalduas County Park, 1/28/10

I ran over to Anzalduas County Park south of Mission this drippy, windy morning in hopes of finally seeing the male Hooded Merganser that I have missed on several previous tries. Here he is!

I also scored a number of of county year birds like this Zone-tailed hawk that made numerous passes over the treetops. The barred tail indicates it is a young bird.

Most birders assume that all dark Mallard type birds are automatically Mottled Ducks. However Mexican Mallards also occur in the RGV. I think these birds below the dam are Mottleds based on the buffy face coloration and thin white line on the speculum.

This Rock Wren has become the unofficial park sentry.

Rose-breasted (and Black-headed) Grosbeak used to be considered as a rare bird during winter in the RGV but they now occur every winter and are expected.
