After more cold crappy weather it finally brightened a bit so I went over to Estero Llano Grande State Park to look for stuff for my new year list. I added a few things, best of which was a couple of calling Virginia Rails. They were "oinking" nearby but wouldn't come out of the cattails. Interesting was this Cinnamon X Blue-winged Teal hybrid.
Soras were all over the place. I had seven of 'em.
Swamp Sparrows are usually real skulkers but this one was a bit brave.
Pauraques are normally easy to see at Estereo Llano Grande but this one was almost on the trail.
