Road trip -- south Texas

Posted by: Jim Williams under Bird travels Updated: April 17, 2012 - 6:06 AM

Someone had to go to Texas to check on migration, so I volunteered. We began in Houston three days ago, today are some distance south, heading for South Padre Islnd. We hope that the extensive rains of the last two days have grounded some trans-gulf migrants. So far, in four days we've seen more birders than migrants. Waterfowl and shorebirds have been seen in pleasing numbers, though. There're always good birds to see down here. Six a.m., time to get back on the road. More later.
