Greg recently accompanied Roger Tory Peterson on a photographic expedition through this area, and he will provide us with some stunning looks at spectacular birds. Greg is actively involved in the documentation of rare birds in Texas, currently serving as Secretary of the Texas Bird Records Committee of the Texas Ornithological Society and as co-editor of the Texas Region for American Birds magazine.

He has authored several articles for ornithological journals and, in 1984, he and other birding friends discovered and documented two new U.S. species, the Yucatan Vireo and the Greenish Elaenia.

The park consists of 1600 acres, with 1200 acres of marsh and coastal grasslands. The land was previously grazed by cattle, and David noted that grassland anywhere in the world, once disturbed, usually reverts to shrub land. The management objective is to restore the park to a representative grassland community by removal of shrubs and exotic plant species, controlled burning, selective mowing to control spread of Chinese Tallow trees and planting motts of native trees which act as, neotropical migrant traps.
