Black-throated Green Warbler
A fly by Greater White-fronted Goose
At Falcon Dam it was quiet and hot but we did find a very cooperative Vermillion.
Eastern or Western Meadowlark? Who knows.
Since we dipped badly at Salineno on our target of Audubon's Oriole, we decided to try Roma Bluffs on the way back to Brownsville in a one last ditch effort.
The view from Roma Bluffs.
Right as we were headed back to the car, ready to throw in the towel, my brother spotted them....
Texas Rose-bellied Lizard
In a random field on the way back to Brownsville we ran into a large blackbird flock.....
Then finally to end our nice long weekend, we headed to Oliviera Park in Brownsville to catch the evening Parrot party. Just before dusk loads of parrots fly in from a day of foraging and land on the wires and in the trees of this little park.
The low light made photography difficult but watching these parrots descend on to some poor guy's cactus and destroy it in a matter of 5 minutes was an interesting experience.
Nom nom nom.....
Yellow-headed Parrots rounded out the list of three parrot species for the park.
We finished our trip at our favorite taqueria in Brownsville and ordered extra Tripa Dorada tacos. Yum.
I am already thinking about going back some day.
