Mission, Maine, USA
There are over 30 species noted at Rio Grande Valley specialties, ie, birds found here that do not go very far into the US.
During spring migration,we can observe many raptors migrating mornings from the Hawk Tower at Bentsen State Park.
Many songbirds are easily seen at Quinta Mazatlan. Shore birds (red bellied whistling duck, etc.)are plentiful at Edinburgh wetlands, Estero Llano and Santa Ana NWR.
Salineno is famous for the most amazing feeding station along the Rio Grande. Falcon State Park is sure to yield road runners, vermillion flycatchers, and many others.
Green parakeets fly overhead in the Palmview McAllen area daily in flocks of 20-200.I can show you 3 monk parakeet nests inhabited by about 3o birds in Hidalgo.
The Hidalgo pump House is another great birding spot. I also can take you to the Brownsville dump to look for the Tamaulipas crow and the Chihuahuan raven.
There are 3 kinds of kingfishers found in these hotspots: belted, ringed and green.
