One of thousands of White-winged Doves gathering the day before Dove Season!



The Question Mark gets its name from the white squiggle on the ventral side of the hindwing (visible in the left-hand photo)


Several Groove-billed Anis call along the back road of the Tropical Zone


Here a Great Kiskadee sings "Hip hip hooray!" while a Curve-billed Thrasher gives its rude double whistle in the background (you can also hear one of the anis).


Park host Huck Hutchins leads Sheri and Ana on a bird walk!


Huck works his magic and finds us a snoozing Pauraque right away!


For me, the best sighting was this Ruddy Daggerwing that flew in!  (It was actually hanging upside-down but I flipped the photo...)



Many Yellow Warblers were migrating through along the Camino de Aves Trail.


Just a small portion of the thousands of Whitewings filling the skies!


The boardwalk over Dowitcher Pond (there was water to the right...)


Spot-tailed Dasher


Rambur's Forktail


Texas Spotted Whiptails can be quite variable (above and below)
