Birds From the Pond in Madero

Because of our subtropical climate, many birds pass through Mission, Texas or make this their home year round. There is a pond south of Mission in the Madero community where birds congregate. The pond is a result of a brick factory from decades ago digging out clay to make bricks. The Rio Grande flows not too far away from there. 

These photos were taken using the limit of the camera's zoom. There aren't as many birds in summer as there are in the fall and winter, when birds migrate through. 

I'll keep adding photos to the album as the seasons progress.
