We had a busy day yesterday. We got going by 10am and headed up the Rio Grande Valley to Mercedes and the Premium Factory Outlet mall. After making a couple of purchases, we stopped in at a taqueria for lunch where we had excellent, authentic Mexican tacos - small, thin corn tortillas topped with succulent barbecued meats, cilantro, onion, and queso fresco (a Mexican white cheese).
After lunch, we drove up to the Edinburg Scenic Wetlands (aka sewage ponds) to the World Birding Center there. It was an overcast day but we had a good look around.
winter wren. We heard it but didn't see it.
I saw this flower in several locations and googled "red Texas flower images" to learn it is called Turk's Cap.
Along another path we encountered this inca dove.
