Birding today at Hugh Ramsey Nature Park

Uncommon in the Rio Grande Valley, one or more Indigo Buntings have been seen in Hugh Ramsey Nature Park in Harlingen for the past month or so. I saw this adult male today as it enjoyed a bath even though it had to share it with a Northern Cardinal.
Buff-bellied Hummingbirds such as the one below are fairly common residents in the Rio Grande Valley.
An apparent pair of Long-billed Thrashers foraged together.
This is one of several Couch's Kingbirds I saw and heard singing in the park.
I had to add this bottom pic to show what bright yellow underparts these birds have. SeEtta
