Frontera Audubon Thicket, 8/30/10

It was hot and muggy this morning at Frontera Audubon Thicket in Weslaco. A few warblers are starting to trickle through. Canada Warbler is one of the last to pass through in the spring and one of the first back in the fall.

Zebra Heliconians are starting to pop up. Maybe they will bring some of their exotic cousins up from Mexico this fall.
