Down in the Valley (the Rio Grande Valley)

April 21, 2015  •  1 Comment

The Rio Grande Valley of Texas is rich in wildlife, especially birds. The many parks and sanctuaries along the river assure that there's lots to see and do. On the way to the Valley, you should also take a tour at King Ranch (yes, the King Ranch of Ford truck fame). In a one-day tour, we saw nearly 100 species of birds!

Here are a few photos from this past weekend's trip.
