1/25 Texas Birding Day 4 Santa Ana NWR

Paul and Fran Bauer and Lois and I traveled to the Lower Rio Grande Valley the end of January
to see many birds that I have never seen. We returned along the gulf though lower Louisiana.

Day 4 2010-01-25: Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge • Lower Rio Grande Valley Texas

A few birds shown on map to establish shooting location, click here for map.

We stayed 7 days at the Alamo Inn and made daily excursions from there. Santa Ana NWR was the first to visit as it was just a short drive to the south. The NWR is now closed off to vehicles so there was lots of walking, kinda hard on Paul, but with many rest stops (birding of course) it was well worth it.
