This Eastern Screech-Owl was seen by the 38 participants on this morning's Lower Rio Grande Valley Birding Festival field trip to Bentsen-Rio Grande Valley State Park. It apparently roosts right next to the road on many days, but some days it goes to another spot that apparently isn't visible from the road. We were lucky today.
We saw lots of the valley's specialties here, especially at the feeders maintained by the state park. These Green Jays created lots of oohs and aahs.
