Texas Document Smooth-billed Ani at SPI, 11/11/22

I have actually been in a birding depression recently. There’s been an attack of Pinyon Jays in west Texas as well as after a group of thirty were seen on the entry roadway to McKittrick Canyon at Guadalupe Mountains Naional Park, I made the virtually 800 mile clear out there. I obtained absolutely nothing. And also on the other hand the Nature Conservancy’s Davis Mountains Protect was open so I ran over there wanting to obtain fortunate in the Pinyon Pines however it was not to be. Upon returning house I found a transmission leakage in our Forester. I had to lead journeys for the the Texas Butterfly Celebration while a Parasitical Jaeger, which I require for my Texas checklist, was revealing on a lake near DFW flight terminal. There was the Townsend’s Jewelry at Falcon State Park which I was not able to go after.

In between the butterfly as well as bird events, I chose to obtain my transmission leakage repaired. Our neighborhood Subaru dearler declined to provide me a quote for the expense over the phone. She claimed they required to consider it. I informed her the CVT was dripping where their solution division had actually changed the shutoff block in the transmission 3 years previously. She still declined to provide me a quote. With the assistance of Mr. Subaru on You Tube, I repaced the dripping gasket myself as well as conserved most likely well over $500.

So currently my automobile is running well as well as I’m leading butterfly journeys for the Rio Grande Valley Birding Celebration when word leaves a feasible Smooth-billed Rectums at South Padre Island. Appeared quite difficult to me that this Caribbean as well as South American types would certainly turn up in southern Texas. They are also difficult to discover in south Florida where they were when typical. Great pictures appeared as well as it verified to be an excellent ID. After completing my journey I competed out to the South Padre Island Birding as well as Nature Facility as well as obtained to see this very first document for Texas. Extremely it was associating a Grooved-billed Ani as well as both were also seen grooming each various other.
