June 22, 2014 - Old Military Highway (including the National Butterfly Center) and Anzalduas County Park



Obviously got away from someone, but it was still pretty cool to find a Cockatiel along Old Military Highway!  (I guess this particular breed is called a "Pearl"...)

Young Black-crested Titmouse (note the gape mark)



This Tropical Parula had been hanging out at the park for awhile...



You can see the details a little better when he's in the sun...



Another Killdeer tries a half-hearted distraction display



Scissor-tailed Flycatcher with an overgrown bill looks around...



More Black-bellied Whistling Ducks demonstrate why they used to be called "tree ducks"!



Over at the National Butterfly Center, a female Fiery Skipper feeds on a fiery-looking flower!

Butterflies aren't the only critters that dine at the bait logs!  (Long-billed Thrasher)

Probably the same Long-billed Thrasher comes over to say hello...


Meanwhile, the Green Jays are fussing about something...
