Birding the Lower Rio Grande Valley

Over the past few days I have birded many places in the lower Rio Grande Valley.  The weather has not been great; the first couple days were hot with strong south winds which changed to 70s with strong north winds today.  Birds have been pretty scarce with some small flocks here and there but usually nothing around.  A few of the highlights have been Hook-billed Kite, Clay-colored Thrush, and Gray Hawk.  Hopefully the weather changes for the better tomorrow!

The weather may not be the best, but with a beauty like the green jay it's always a good birding day! Hope you had a wonderful time at the festival.
