Out birding

Ken's foot is just fine and the weather turned out to be nice so we've been out several places birding. We've gone back to our favorite place Hugh Ramsey Park and we saw our first Green Kingfisher and Ringed Kingfisher so we'll be going back to try and get photos.
We did another nite tour at Laguna Atascosa NWR, we saw Night Herons, White-tailed Kite which we can add to our life list. We also saw two bob cats, coyote, deer, Spoonbills, Pauraque and several feral pigs which they do not like for all the damage they cause. Our driver found a muddy spot and got stuck so we all got out and the guys pushed the van out.
Today we went to Bentsen-Rio Grande Valley S.P. In the entrance they had several feeders and there were about 30 Chachalaca feeding, they were fun to watch. We saw our first White-winged Dove. We find that in the state parks you have to ride their trolley, walk or bicyle or combination.
Ken's laptop crashed so he has to call a Dell technetion and Monday being a holiday he have to wait, but at least he can use mine til his is fixed.

Good photos! What time are the night safaris? It looks really dark but maybe it gets dark early there too.
