South Padre Island Big Sit: Part 2
Above is Jeff Gordon, manning the spotting scope sometime around 8:00 this morning. Right now it's about 10:40 and we're sitting around 105 species and Jeff is napping. The action had been fast paced though it's showing signs of slowing down now, as most of the birds we are seeing have already been counted. If we can pull out 30 more species for the day, we will be doing very well. I'm crossing my fingers that one of the birds that I will set eyes on before the end of the day is a Magnificent Frigatebird. That's the most likely candidate for a new bird that will get me another species closer to my goal of 600.
