January 18, 2014 - Quinta Mazatlan & Edinburg Scenic Wetlands


A couple of Lesser Goldfinches were being particularly vocal in the parking lot; this recording ends with a bit of a song.


This Long-billed Thrasher was singing along a side trail.


One of many wintering House Wrens putting up a fuss in the new south wing.



This Inca Dove pair sat pretty at the feeder area and then came down for a drink!  (Check out those red eyes!)




Their wintering Wilson's Warbler gave its distinctive chep call by the mansion.


The south pond at the Wetlands had a mixed flock of Lesser Scaup, Ruddy Ducks, and two female Canvasbacks.


Female Canvasback.


Nutria that was spooked into the water by someone's dog...


The prize in the north garden was a Tropical Parula; listen very carefully for its chiddle-chiddle-zee-zee song in amongst all the chips of the Butterbutts!



More cooperative was this Black-and-white Warbler.



A Snowy Egret provides a high-contrast photo op at the Dragonfly Pond!



Curious White-eyed Vireo (the little bird with the big voice)!
