We kiss our princess goodbye and head to the airport to spend Spring Break birding the Rio Grande Valley. After a 1 hr delay in Chicago, and having to run through the Houston airport to catch our connecting flight, we finally arrived late Saturday evening - without our luggage.
So, still wearing the same clothes we wore the day before we got up on Sunday and grabbed breakfast in the hotel. Lilly, who was setting up the breakfast foods noticed me fussing with my hair and offered to braid it for me.
Back in the car, we marked birds off our checklist and headed on to S. Padre.
We hunted for the owl for about an hour, but no luck, so we decided to bird the boardwalk at the Nature Center. Sunning himself on one of the grassy areas, was this handsome alligator - sort of reminds me of our son Paul in the mornings.
but the most stunning birds of the day were the Roseate Spoonbills.
