Birds -- South Texas, Feb-March 2011

From February 25 to March 2, 2011, I was in the Rio Grande Valley for a concentrated stint of bird photography. I visited two ranches, Martin Refuge (thanks to Patty Raney) and Ramirez Ranch (thanks to Roel Ramirez, and Lupita), and also Edinburg Wetlands, Williams Wildscapes in Pharr, Frontera Audubon in Weslaco, Estero Llano Grande, Santa Ana NWR, and Salineno. I added eighteen species to my list of birds photographed, and had one of the best bird photography experiences of my life! A selection of photos from the trip are in this gallery, with more in a second gallery linked at the bottom of this one.
