Birding in the Rio Grande Valley and sometimes elsewhere.

A couple of good RGV birds, 2/7/15
The good birds just keep a coming in the Rio Grande Valley of south Texas. We've been hosting a Crimson-collared Grosbeak at the Frontera Audubon thicket in Weslaco while Santa Ana NWR has had a Northern Jacana. Now add to that a White-throated Thrush at Estero Llano Grande State Park. Last year they also had one, but that one was really difficult to photograph. This one, the seventh I've seen in the Valley, is pretty friendly as it feeds on brush holly berries.
Meanwhile Frontera has attracted a sharp male Blue Bunting. It is proving hard to see and even tougher to photograph.
So what's up next? I have a feeling we're not done yet. I guess I'd better get out and start beating the bushes.
