The two birds I wanted to get the most in this area of Texas (southwest) were the Colima Warbler and the Scissor Tailed Flycatcher. We tried twice for the Colima and twice for the Scissor Tailed, no luck.
Days 4 and 6
In checking BirdTrax on eBird.com, a program that people identify and show where they see birds, I saw that in Brewster County, there were a couple sightings for the Scissor Tailed below us, near Alpine, TX. So….off we went to Alpine. We hunted 1/2 the day, to no avail. However, I did manage to get to get some other shots.
