Summer Tanager is also an uncommon wintering bird. This young male was grabbing honey bees at a hummingbird feeder at the new Indigo Blind.
My goal today was to see the Topical Parula but I had to settle for Northern Parula.
Two Pine Warblers were a nice surprise.
Nashville Warblers seem to be around in higher than usual numbers.
I had heard reports of a presumed hybrid Curve-billed X Long-billed Thrasher and I guess this is it. It certainly shows traits of each species.
A few days ago I spent a couple of hours at the Roselawn Cemetery in McAllen in an attempt to get my annual Western Tanager for Hidalgo County. I could not find one but was happy to get the Plumbeous Vireo that has been present since early November.
Don't know how serious I'm going to be with the county list this year but it's nice to take advantage of the beautiful weather and birds that are around now.
