July 26, 2014 - Birder Patrol Trip to the La Feria Area
The Birder Patrol at Tiocano Lake (Visible L-R: Cheryle, MJ, Pat, Sue, and Bert)
MJ & Pat check out something across the canal in Donna's neighborhood...
...while the others continue down the canal (L-R: Bert, Donna, Cheryle, Sue, and a hiding Norma)
We get special permission to bird Bass Lake RV Park, where we found lots of shorebirds, including a few Semipalmated Sandpipers!
Here a Semipal is joined by a Least Sandpiper (right).
Two Black-necked Stilts with a Stilt Sandpiper in the background, plus two Least Sandpipers and a Semipal on the far right.
Semipalmated Sandpiper and Lesser Yellowlegs
Over at La Feria Nature Park, a female Least Bittern hides in the reeds and then flees across the pond! (Not sure if Donna got the grackle going after her...)
A Tropical Kingbird goes after a juvenile White-tailed Kite!
Another juvie kite; note the crisp white feather edgings on the wings and the remnant of brown on the chest.
One of many Black-bellied Whistling Ducks hanging out
Not the best shot, but my FOY Wood Stork was exciting!
