Guests

Our first guests in February, 2002.  These patient folks put up with a much-less-than-finished facility.  The bare scrape to the near left, for example, is now a thriving pond, complete with Coastal Bend Toads and other amphibians to serenade guests to sleep at night.  But don't worry--if toad music isn't your thing, just shut the windows and crank up the A/C.

For Canadian birders, February in the Rio Grande Valley is all the excuse needed to break out the shorts and sandals. Buff-bellied hummers, Golden-fronted woodpeckers, Couch’s Kingbirds, Groove-billed Anis, Plain Chachalacas, Harris Hawks, Black-bellied Whistling Ducks, Common and Lesser Nighthawks, and Pauraques are common residents at Casa Santa Ana, along with many other area specialties. They often can be ticked while sitting in the yard, as these four are doing. Sorry guys, no Snow Buntings.

Oklahoma birders celebrate a productive day. It’s amazing how satisfying a lifer can be, in this case, a Golden-crowned Warbler.
