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"...)

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!

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

 

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