Comments:
Rained out yesterday on my birthday, so despite rain draped all along the coast, took a stab today. The negative first. I've lived in SE Texas my entire life, duck hunted several years, and birded many more. I can honestly say the volume and ferocity of mosquitos was the worst I've ever experienced. No contest. However, the birding was sufficiently good to make it impossible to leave. Impressive showing, especially of ground hugging warblers. Have to think the weather pattern has pinned birds down at the coast. Regardless, one of the better fall days in memory.
