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 arrived at Sulphur in the evening and they had very heavy rains that night, 6-8 inches, so we decided to stay an extra day to let the rains go by. In the afternoon we took an exploratory tour down towards Holly Beach as the rain had decreased to a drizzle. Made a stop at the Intra-coastal Canal and also found a whole bunch of Avocets at one spot. Proceeded a short ways west at Holley Beach and found some Sandpipers and Plovers along the beach.
