On The Road:RGVBF-Day 5 -Bentsen Rio Grande State Park

Well it’s finally over and boy am I exhausted. But it’s a good kind of exhausted and a once in a life time experience.  The birds were nothing but phenomenal,  while all the staff and trip leaders were all very nice and helpful.
Today’s trip took us once again down to the border with Mexico and we went to Bentsen Rio Grande State Park. This is just another example of a superior park developed for us nature loving bird watchers. This trip there were only 11 attendees along with 2 leaders, so this was a more personal trip where everyone had ample opportunities to see the birds without having to battle a large crowd.
This trip bagged me 3 more life birds, an since I’m leaving tomorrow afternoon I really don’t think I will find any more new birds.
New life birds include:
Cave Swallow
Audubon’s Oriole
Black Phoebe
