While traveling down to the Rio Grande Valley a couple of days ago, I birded a variety of locations along the upper Texas coast. I was able to bird Anahuac NWR, Texas Point NWR, and Sea Rim State Park as well as some other spots I didn't spend as much time at. I also stopped by some of the Port Aransas spots and had more Redheads than you can imagine. I also had many shorebirds including Long-billed Curlews, Whimbrel, Marbled Godwit, Stilt Sandpiper, and two Western Sandpipers.
I will post some more detail about each of these spots later . . . hope you enjoy the photos!
