Winter Outdoor & Wildlife Expo

Our friends, Sharon and Rick, met us out at the S. Padre World Birding Center this weekend. We birded for a couple of hours before the weekly presentation started.

Sandwich Tern

Mottled Duck

Little Blue Heron

Great-tailed Grackle

Black Skimmer

American Oystercatcher

After the program we walked across the street to the Winter Outdoor & Wildlife Expo. We walked around all the booths and listened to a presentation from Sea Turtle, Inc.

Gladys Porter Zoo was there with a Blue Tongue Skink

Sea Turtle, Inc. was there.

Sealife Center had a touch tank.

There was a lot to see and do on the island this weekend. Including a kite festival.


  1. I'm going to have to enforce a ban on pictures of myself on this blog! (I know it's not about me, but still...) -Rick

  2. Hummm ... I thought the turtle was the star of the photo -)
    I found a "better" photo.
