1/28 Texas Birding Day 7a Salineno Area

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.

We stopped by the Salineno area first this morning before going to the Falcon area. As we arrived at the Rio Grande River boat ramp we were pleasantly surprised to see a Red-shouldered Hawk. Great start for the day. After looking around some we headed for the feeders, an experience nobody should miss. A bonanza of birds.
