Frontera Audbon Thicket, 11/17/07

This morning Mary Gustafson found a Winter Wren along the trail on the south side of the pond at Frontera Audubon Thicket in Weslaco. As I was already leaving I didn't have much time to look for it. Best bird I had was a Clay-colored Robin along the south fence and a female Painted Bunting along the boardwalk. There were a pair of Green Kingfishers in the narrow pool west of the pond and a pair (same?) along the east ditch. A Yellow-throated Warbler was at the water feature behind the visitor's center. Overall migrant and wintering passerines are still low in numbers.

I though this Soldier looked cool sitting on the reed.

What's going on? I always check your site for your birding trips, but you have not been birding lately.
