Birds we hope to see include Hook-billed Kite, Gray Hawk, Zone-tailed Hawk, Clay-colored Robin, Buff-bellied Hummingbird, Green Kingfisher, Tropical Parula and Gray-crowned Yel lowthroat (if the one presently at Falcon Dam lingers throughout the winter). Remember-- almost any of these could show up. We will use McAllen as our headquarters. I suggest we stay in the Motel 6 (512/687-3700).
