      Is that down at the Rio Grande Village in Big Bend?
    • Pleistohorse
      Yes sir. Right in the campground.

      Did you see the Common Black-Hawks and Gray Hawks there?
    • Pleistohorse
      No sadly. We did see Greater Roadrunners, Scaled Quail, Turkey Vultures, Mourning Doves, Blue Grosbeak (?), Raven (unsure if Common or Chihuahuan - size, familiarity with Alaskan birds, and geography have me hoping Chihuahuan...but who knows), a Mexican Jay, a couple other yet unidentifieds, and a Barn Owl (which flew through the headlights on the road to Marathon). We also saw a couple of Hawks roosting near the Border Control Point north of the park..but I don't know which species.

      There's a Black-Hawk nesting area near the campground.

      I did see signs in the area alerting visitors to the critical nesting habitat. Our Texas schedule was upended and my leisurely plans...kinda morphed into a key highlight windshield tour. Maybe next year.

      The nest is about 100 feet from that sign.
    There are no comments to display.
