Sabal Palm Audubon Sanctuary

We checked off another birding site today, this one was south of Brownsville on the Rio Grande River. It was an interesting place but very few birds and butterflies but as we were ending our visit I heard a noise and saw several Chachalaca in the underbrush. So we were able to add another bird to our life list.
The first photo is a flower from a tree in front of the Brownsville Visitor Center, just gorgeous. The lady behind the counter was from Richman, MO practically a neighbor!
I guess a couple of my names for the duck and a butterfly were wrong yesterday, Ken's photos are more detailed and he decided the duck was a Blue-wing teal and the butterfly a Laviana White-Skipper, sorry.
