Rustys have been around this location all winter.

Likely a western race bird as they are darker than most of our wintering Field Sparrows.
We saw three Boat-tailed Grackles along the roadside here, including this singing male. This is right at the southern edge of this species' range.
These two Whoopers were spotted from the side of Hwy 35 in Aransas Co., where they were visiting a corn feeder set out for deer. This is something that is becoming more common to see whereas 10+ years ago these birds rarely, if ever, left the coastal marshes. The population increase in the species may be causing some of the birds to investigate new foraging opportunities.
