I believe that I have mentioned in a previous post that one of the things I have been involved in here at Fun N Sun, is an effort to get a birding group together here at the RV Resort. We have been working on a proposal to expand and improve the bird feeding area behind the library. We want to put in a water drip and a mister. And plant some native scrubs and flowers. We also are planning to take a group of the people from the park to one of the World Birding Centers, Quinta Mazatlan. This place is about 45 minutes west of the San Benito. We went there this morning to check the place out. Very nice. It is located in downtown McAllen. There are trails and feeder stations throughout. Our proposal is complete and we are going to set up a meeting with park management for a presentation. Hopefully, they will give us the go ahead.
This afternoon, the annual park Mardi Gras Parade was held. It was quite a fun time watching the parade. Click on this link to see a YouTube video of a portion of the parade.
