Anne and I finally arrived this afternoon and immediately set out to see who we could see. In short order, we spotted 14 bird species, 8 of which are entirely new to me, and one butterfly. The wifi is kinda slow here, so I’ll just post a couple pictures to whet your appetite.
Here’s a handsome black-throated sparrow (Amphispiza bilineata)
And here’s a rock wren (Salpinctes obsoletus)
That’s it for now. Tomorrow we venture into Big Bend National Park. Wish us luck!
