We also drove out to Laguna Atascosa NWR, we didn't spend much time there as it was after 3. From there, we went and reserved our space for a couple of months at Hummingbird Cove RV park, we'll move in Sunday. We did look at another park that is not in the congested area and rent was twice as much so that clinched the deal for Hummingbird Cove. There are more than 500 parks in the area, and like AZ they all have park models. So we'll see how we like being away from all the action.

Chasing Butterflies again
We started our birding today while learning the area. We were near Santa Ana NWR so we stopped to check it out. We saw our first Green Jays at their feeding station. We walked one trail and we saw several Zebra Heliconians we've seen them at local butterfly houses but never in the wild. Ken didn't bring a camera and we didn't bring any binoculars or have mosquitoes repellent on so one trail was it. We did stop at their butterfly garden and I tried to get photos of some butterflies but they turned out blurry. I think we saw Sickle-winged Skipper and a Little Yellow and Brown Longtail. They are to have 300 butterfly species here, but I hear it is nearly the end of their butterfly season.
