Green Jay

Sabal Palm Grove Sanctuary located at the south of Brownsville near the Mexico border, is an area run by the Texas Audubon to protect a remnant of the beautiful habitat that once stretched along the Rio Grande River. Many of the interesting birds whose range is in extreme southern Texas, are to be found here, and many can be found at the feeders behind the visitor’s center, Black-crested Titmouse, Green Jay, Plain Chachalacha, Olive Sparrow, Buff-bellied Hummingbird, and Audubon’s Oriole are all regular visitors.

There is a blind which overlooks a large pond which allows good looks at some excellent birds. The Belted, Ringed, and Green Kingfishers all make appearances. The diminutive Least Grebe is easily found, and Mottled Ducks are resident.

This refuge has had more than it’s share of rarities, including Gray-crowned Yellowthroat which seems to have become a regular resident.

Sanctuary Trails are open year-round 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Sanctuary gates close at 5:00 p.m.

Visitor Center is open 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. daily

Southern Sea Lion

In the Beagle Channel at Tierra del Fuego, lie a number of small rocky islands. On a few of these islands, large numbers of Southern Sea Lions bask in the sun. The sexes are much different in size, the males very large with a huge head, and darker in color than the females.

A late burst of color

Late Flowers

Late Flowers

Late summer brings some great color from wildflowers that grow in groups. In this abandoned field there are sprays of Canada Goldenrod and white and blue Asters. Also common is the smaller variety Common Sunflower that is native to North America, sprays of Common Toadflax and the long flowering Birdsfoot Trefoil. Wildflowers may soon disappear as the days get colder but they have saved a great display to the end.
