Frontera Audubon Thicket, 9/30/13

I checked out Frontera audubon Thicket in Weslaco this morning.  I had not been in since the most recent rains and the thicket was looking great.  I found a couple of Northern Beardless-Tyrannulets.

Green Kingfishers were on the long narrow pond.

Overhead migrant Broad-winged Hawks rose up on thermals and then headed south.

Among the eight species of warblers was this basic plumaged Magnolia Warbler.

The Thicket is full of blooming Turk's cap which is a favorite of the Buff-bellied Hummingbird.
