On the way in we spotted a couple of chachalacas at the feeder. By the visitor's centre, there is a big pond where we spotted Northern shovelers, white ibis, white-faced ibis, green-wing teal

coots, and blue-wing teal.
The golden-fronted woodpecker was enjoying the grapefruit.
Other birds we spotted but didn't capture photographically were a black and white warbler and a ruby-crowned kinglet (both on the tropical trail), snowy egrets, cardinals at the feeding station, yellow rumped warblers, great kiskadees, one vermilion flycatcher, and a ladder-backed woodpecker.
The weather was fabulous. After lunch at a local taqueria, we drove over to the Costco at Pharr to get gas and pick up some of our customary provisions. Back at the island, the skies were overcast and it was quite a bit cooler. We were very glad to have spent the day in the sun.
