Estero Llano Grande State Park

Estero Llano Grande State Park is one of my favorite sites of the Rio Grande World Birding Centers. It’s a pleasant respite from the otherwise harsh landscape of South Texas. The birding was fantastic. The 2 specific birds I remember from my trip 7 years ago, the pauraque (click on the link and check out the cool sound they make at night) and the vermillion flycatcher were both in the same places I remember from last time. The black crowned night herons and yellow crowned night herons were where I expected around the same pond. The bird that made my day was the glossy ibis. It’s nice to see that nature is still thriving here.
