My parents and I started the morning in Laredo. We found 5 White-collared 
Seedeaters on the Las Palmas trail. Got some decent photos of a female.

We arrived at Salineno at 1030. We found a Red-billed Pigeon across from the 
parking area in Mexico. It eventually flew over in to Texas a few meters from 
us. Best looks I've had of the species. We never could find Muscovy. Airboats 
were patrolling the river. They kicked up a few birds, but not the target 

Bentsen was hot. Spotted sandpipers were at the boat ramp. Tyrannulet was at 
the Kiskadee feeders. Empid was over at the Green Jay blind. Looked like a 
Least, but I didn't get a long enough look or listen to call it. Adult Gray 
Hawk was moving around and vocal.

Anyone know a good location for Botteri's? Also know a location for for Pygmy 
Owls that doesn't cost an arm and a leg? Contact me offline.
