This morning I headed over to Bentsen Rio Grande State Park south of Mission to get some county year birds. I missed the Allen's Hummingbird and Ferruginous Pygmy-Owl but got most of the others I needed there. It took a couple of hours before the Rose-throated Becard showed up at the feeder on the Acacia Loop.
Other good birds included both Black-headed and Rose-breasted Grosbeaks.
There was also a small flock of Indigo Buntings.
A Clay-colored Thrush strutted around below a feeder.
American Robins might sound boring but I saw my first of the year for hidalgo County today.
There was a Least Flycatcher by the visitor's center.
