I think your trips would be greatly enhanced if you purchased some ID books...
I went quail hunting with my cousin once outside of Alpine. It involved lots of beer. I would be just getting comfortable with my beer when he would slam on the brakes, jump out of the truck, and start shooting. I never even saw a quail until after he was out of the truck. I was terrible at it. I can see how an accident would happen.
green jay, tho; those guys are just as brave as their blue cousins. I see them frequently in the Chisos.
Quote from: "Roy"green jay, tho; those guys are just as brave as their blue cousins. I see them frequently in the Chisos.Roy, are you thinking about Mexican Jays? I don't believe Green Jay has ever been documented in BBNP - I just checked Ro Wauer's book "A Field Guide to Birds of the Big Bend" and it isn't listed. In Peterson and Zimmer's book "Birds of the Trans-Pecos", they say Green Jays are "very rare and irregular in winter near Del Rio...absent elsewhere in the Trans-Pecos."I've seen them in the Rio Grande Valley, too, and I agree with you - they are beautiful birds!
