Almost our last stop on the birding trip. We got some great backyard birds we still needed and we were only about 40 miles from home. Nice look around the hill country of Texas also..

Last stop in the Valley

October 11, 2016  |  Family, Outdoors  |  Comments Off on Last stop in the Valley

We had worked out way up the Rio Grande moving west, and we were approaching Laredo. Our last birding stop before heading north was in San Ygnacio, an amazing small town that had never moved forward in time. They had a great nature area near the river with good security from our friends on the border patrol.

We stood right on the Rio Grand, looking for a Kingfisher,  in a pretty remote part of Texas, West of Roma and East of Laredo.. If you wait around for a while you get a Visit from one of these guys..
