Was down in the Lower Rio Grande Valley for a staff meeting with the other urban wildlife biologists. Had such a great time -- temps in the 80's! This day was the field-trip day, and Tony chose some awesome places to explore.

First up was Quinta Mazatlan birding center in McAllen. This is a great urban refuge for birds.

Description from Wikipedia

Lynx spider is the common name for any member of the family Oxyopidae. Most species make little use of webs, instead spending their lives as hunting spiders on plants. Many species frequent flowers in particular, ambushing pollinators, much as crab spiders do. They tend to tolerate members of their own species more than most spiders do, and at least one species has been identified as exhibiting social behaviour.
