Birding with Bob Rasas

Spent an enjoyable day birding with Bob Rasas, the Uvalde birding expert.  We missed the Rufous-capped Warbler (hasn’t been seen in 8 days so most likely it’s gone) but picked up 6 new year birds (see updated list).  Bob is doing a Texas  bird photograph Big Year with a goal of 500. I’ll be checking in periodically.  He leads daily birding trips at Neal’s Lodge March through May, with Golden-cheeked Warbler and Black-capped Vireo almost a certainty.  Tomorrow I’m off the the Clovis Sewage Ponds (I can almost feel my brother Jim’s indignation at the thought of birding at sewage ponds, but birds love them) for the Eurasian Wigeon.

    Yes, I am appropriately appalled at your trip to the sewage ponds. Do birds have no dignity?

    Sad I had to miss this part! Nothing follows up anatomically-named birds like a trip to the crapper.
    Maybe we could have gone to the paper-mill to get the Kelp gull.
