The End of March

After a weekend selling onion rings at the Texas Onion Festival in Weslaco, we are all back at Frontera looking for migratory birds.  The Golden-crowned Warbler was last seen on March 4th, but a few other “good” birds are starting to drop in.

Here is Dan Jones’ list from Thursday.  It was a Northern Parula that he saw.  The Tropical was a typo.  Sorry.
