Frontera Audubon Thicket, 10/20/07

It was a delightful morning at Frontera Audubon Thicket in Weslaco. Warblers are still low in numbers. We're waiting on our first cold front of the fall season which is supposed to blow into town on Monday. Best bird was this young male Vermillion Flycatcher. I think it's a first for the park. I need to update the park list. It's somewhere around 190 species. A flyover Northern Harrier was unusual also. Fifteen Scissor-tailed Flycatches were headed south.

Here's a Pale-banded Crescent (I think).
