Being on the border is definitely strange.. having travelled near and in Canada a lot growing up, our border to the south has a different feel and the fence does not feel as friendly as I would like.. We should be kind to folks coming to visit us..Also here are a few Random shots from Quinta Mazatlan
Sabal Palms sanctuary was like a Jungle.. it was nearing 100 degrees and absolutely still.. tannin laden waters with Lizards and snakes all around.. We hiked around the water features and right up to the survey markers for the Border.. What an adventure!
Sabal Palms Located in no mans Land between the Border fence and the Mexico border, this is about as far south as you can go and still be in US territory. Its a beautiful and critical sanctuary for birds and a wonderful old home to explore!
Some Pictures I kinda liked from the Little cam.. one shot of the team here… The Scott Free Family Birders
Right on the Border of Mexico, lies Hidalgo Texas…a quaint little town with a rep for Killer bees!
Located on S. Padre Island, Blackbeard’s Seafood.. or they should call it all things fried.. actually.. there were some grilled items.. hehe… Cheers!
I finally downloaded the little cam from the birding classic.. lots of great shots of the family and small stuff!
The folks at Pedernales leave out some old stuffing from a pillow or a dog toy.. it makes for excellent nesting material for the hummingbirds..
At Pedernales we got a splash of color from some Ruby Throated Hummingbirds and a Painted bunting.. Oh…and a Squirrel got a drink of water…
Pedernales St. Park has a great bird blind.. 2 sides with a glassed area and all of the features to bring in what ever happens to be passing through. Saw some great little birds in there, but the sighting of the day was the group of Mississippi Kites waking up at the top of a dead spike
