The first three weeks in November is butterfly heaven in the Rio Grande Valley. We took day trips to Edinburg Scenic Wetlands Birding Center, Santa Ana NWR, Quinta Mazatlan, and The National Butterfly Center plus right here at Bentsen RGV State Park. Here's our Butterfly & Insect photo collection....

On the way back west we stopped at Santa Ana and saw 7 Groove-billed Anis and a surprise Rose-throated Becard.
Happy Thanksgiving from the two of us.
