On Tuesday morning, November 8th, I will be boarding a plane in Detroit bound for Texas. Along with my friend, Bob Turner, I will be attending the Rio Grand Valley Birding Festival (RGVBF). You can click on this link for a look at their web-site. There are six birds (Texas specialities) illustrated there. Click on these pictures for enlargements to get a good view of these beautiful birds. Hopefully, I will be able to bring back my own pictures of some or all of these specialities.
