On a recent 3 night/4 day visit to South Padre Island,TX, hubs and I toured the South Padre Island Birding and Nature Center.

We saw many species I had never before seen, the weather was perfect for photos, and we enjoyed an almost 2 mile walk along the boardwalks and around the grounds.

My feature photo is of a Gallinule. Apparently, this is a common bird. (Not common in my part of Canada)

My next several posts will feature the animals and birds we saw there, as well as some info about the Center. Situated right across the street from our hotel, the location was very convenient.
