On The Road:RGVBF-Laguna Atascosa N.W.R. & Anzaluduas County Park

Laguna Atascosa is massive. I once thought that Ottawa N.W.R. was large but when we started our tour in our customary tour bus you knew we were in for something special. After a long drive on a single lane road the place really opened up when we came into view of the Laguna Madre. The Laguna Madre is the area between the mainland of Texas and barrier island of South Padre Island. We saw ten of thousands of various ducks and other wading birds as we drove a short while, then stopped and everyone got out of the bus to look at the birds. This process of starting and stopping wasn’t quite my cup of tea of birding, however when you have a large group this is probably the best way to do it. I think the best way to really cover any refuge of this size would be on the back of a bicycle.
After this field trip was over I drove to Anzalduas Park on a hot tip from my bus buddy on a Greater Pewee that has been there for a few days.
It was another full day with just one more left.
Life birds for the day include:
Greater Roadrunner
