Day 5--Estero Llano Grande State Park, Tx

Day 5 was mostly a travel day from south Texas to south Florida. It did start with a chilly but very nice walk around Estero Llano Grande State Park in Weslaco, Tx. This is part of the World Bird Center which includes Bentsen Rio Grande Valley State Park. It is just a really great place to hang out and bird--lots of different habitat, with good trails for moving thru the park. At the end of the 90 minute visit I had added another 14 birds to the year list. And on the way to the airport I made a quick stop at a local taqueria for a couple of cooked to order (as opposed to say the premade breakfast burrito at Mickey D's), delicious breakfast tacos--yummy!

Tomorrow morning I am up before sunrise to visit the Everglades in hopes of finding the recently reported La Sagra's flycatcher, another rarity that shows up briefly about once or twice a year in south Florida. Stay tuned!
