Our month on South Padre ends today. It was a great trip. We saw 210 species. Off to Portal Arizona Apr 15 and then Green Valley Arizona on April 22. If you want to follow our travels and see what birds we find, bookmark this site. Thanks to everyone for checking us out and helping with some ID problems. Should have a new blog in about a week if Portal has internet but I am doubting it. Keep checking back.
|Two Red-breasted Grosbeaks (still looking a little scruffy) were at Sheepshead Sunday Apr 13. For an explanation of the appearance see Dave Irons comments below. For photographers the ISO was 2500.|

|The Dunlins have been drab up to now and they are changing fast. The black breast is almost complete.|
|I believe this is also a Red-crowned but has a yellow cheek. I have been informed it is a Red-lored Parrot. Thanks Madeline. Too bad it isn't countable : > (|
|Yellow-headed Parrot. Not countable.|
|Kite beach on S. Padre. We found all our plovers here.|
