Just made it back from a very productive trip to Texas. Starting off in San Antonio the route led through the hill country, down to the Rio Grande Valley where I spent most of the time, then back up to the coastal bend before flying out of San Antonio.
Here's the trip report for this April 2008 Texas trip (under edit) .
Experiencing a remarkable string of luck, I found life birds on each of the first five days: Black-capped Vireo, White-throated Robin, Red-billed Pigeon, Hook-billed Kite, White-collared Seedeater, Ferruginous Pygmy-Owl, Groove-billed Ani and Aplomado Falcon.
I'm sure the mosquito bites will go away eventually.
