Birding Southern Texas

Posted Monday 24th March 2014 at 12:27 by Old Fulica
My wife and I are currently in South Padre Island Texas. This is close to Brownsville and the Mexican border. This is a very exciting birding area for a northerner from Canada as many of the birds we see are either new or very rarely seen in our part of the world (British Columbia). We will be here for a month and then off to Arizona to catch their spring migration. To follow our adventures check out our blog;

The fragility of a Birding Mojo

Posted Monday 17th March 2014 at 23:15 by Green Sandpiper
I've mentioned before my hope that this would be a 'good year' not necessarily a 'big year' as too much else in life impacts on my birding, but a year of quality birding, new places, new species, immersing myself in birds and nature. Its funny though how the birding gods conspire to keep your feet on the ground- for every ying of a great day out, there's the yang of a blown weekend. Take a couple of recent weekends.

The first of my big days out (where I had been promised the car...

Plight of the New Zealand Dotterel.

Posted Friday 14th March 2014 at 10:24 by Rick and Elis

It is the largest of the Charadrius plovers and is divided into two subspecies. The nominate Charadrius o. obscurus is very rare and breeds just on Stewart Island off South Island. Its population has risen from a low of 62 birds to 250 after feral cats were controlled on the island. Charadrius o. aquilonius lives at the north end of the...
