Hi everyone!  Kevin and myself spent a couple of weeks last month photograph
birds along the Gulf Coast of Texas and in the Rio Grande Valley area.  We
got forty Life Birds (birds we had never seen before) on this trip!!  Two
"finds" were really exciting, the Rose-throated Becard, and the
Bare-throated Tiger Heron (found at the Bentsen Rio Grande Valley State
Park).  This was the first report of this Heron in the United States ever
and we just happened to be there!


One of the places we went to was the Martin Refuge in Edinburg, Texas (thank
you Terence Brashear for telling us about this place!).  This refuge is a
ranch owned by John and Audrey Martin that has eight blinds for
photographing birds from.  Some of these blinds are built into the ground so
that you are photographing at eye level to the birds!  The Bird Guide there,
Patty Raney, is wonderful and teaches you not only about the birds in that
region, but about the flora etc. on the ranch.  She was wonderful.  ).
There can also be wildlife coming into view to photograph.  While we were
there, Javelinas (20 at a time!) came!  We'd highly recommend a visit to
this refuge (you need reservations, go to, if you are
interested in learning more
