Pyrrhuloxia (a word hard to pronounce, spell, AND type!) getting a drink at the Santa Clara Ranch - one of the sites visited by the RGVBF's pre-Fest photography safari trip. Nice pic by Steve Sinclair.

The Valley's Black-bellied Whistling Ducks are very much in evidence with their nesting antics right now - burrowing into dead palm fronds, checking out holes, standing on roofs and wires, chattering chattering chattering. Bathing shot by Steve Sinclair.

Yay - we're LIVE. Check out the new and improved RGV Birding Festival website (thx website guru, Kenny Salazar!). Complete with 2013's INCREDIBLE slate of trips and talks. It's the 20th anniversary, after all! And this year's artwork? Buff-bellied Humingbird by FP Tony Bennett (the artist for the 1st year, 10th year, and now the 20th year!). Registrations will open in a few weeks - stay tuned! http://www.rgvbf.org/

Photographers! There's a few seats left on the RGVBF's two photography offerings: Ruth Hoyt's Photo Ops (featuring private ranches with waterholes and blinds) and Larry Ditto's Workshop (featuring the birdiest US NWR). And don't forget the Extreme Raptors Photoshoot on Thursday morning 8 Nov. A great opportunity for natural perch and flight shots, with guidance from Jonathan Wood himself. www.rgvbf.org
