Spring 2011 images from Texas:

Updated: Friday July 22, 2011

After moving to Harlingen, Texas in August 2010, I eagerly awaited the 2011 Spring migration season. As you can see, I spent a lot of time at the lower Texas coast's best migrant trap, South Padre Island. Although the weather was not as cooperative as I would have liked (almost continuous southerly winds which produced no major "fallouts"), there were still lots of good birds to see (and photograph!).

Enjoy the birds and photos below...I certainly did while I was taking them!
