Hi all, One of my local patches here in the Rio Grande Valley of south Texas is Frontera Audubon Thicket. Frontera, a fourteen acre patch of native brush and wetland, is located in Weslaco about four blocks from our house. Though it's only been open about six years, the park list is up to about 190 species which includes ABA mega-rarities such as Mottled Owl, Crimson-collared Grosbeak, White-throated Robin and Blue Mockingbird. Texas rarites include Violet-crowned Hummingbird, Dusky-capped Flycatcher, Mangrove Cuckoo and Elegant Trogon. There's always the possiblity of something good at Frontera.
