On The Road: RGVBF Day 2- Upper Rio Grande Valley

Todays field trip took us 2 hours by bus up the Rio Grande valley in search of habitat specific birds that differ from the tropical lower valley. It was still another hot day but the air seemed drier and the birds were harder to pick up on. After this trip I waited around for another field trip that involved 4 vans driving around town looking for roosting Green Parakeets and Red-crowned Parrots.
Life birds today include
Green Parakeet
Red-crowned Parrot
Red-Lored Parrot
Verdin
Black-tailed Gnatcatcher
Zone-tailed Hawk
Olive Sparrow
Pyrrhuloxia
Hooded Oriole
Black-throated Sparrow
