Black Scoters are being found in good numbers along northern half of the Texas Coast this fall, but the sightings at Boca Chica are the only one reported south of Aransas County so far.
Well that was easy so why not drive over to South Padre Island and look for the Black-headed Grosbeak at the Birding Center. I have seen several in Hidalgo County and one in Cameron County but they have all been in juvenile plumage. This one was a nice adult feeding on fiddlewood berries in front of the South Padre Island Birding Center.
It's been a great fall and I haven't even been over for the Roadside Hawk or Golden-crowned Warblers yet. Hope they hang around.
