Day 32: Bentsen State Park

This park is supposedly one of the stations of the cross for serious birders. Apparently for frivilous bird lovers like us, not so much so. We did see some semi-domesticated birds at a series of bird feeding stations. It was a nice five walk on a loop road, shared with guided motor trams and fat RVers riding their matching folding bicycles, all wearing cute matching bicycle club t-shirts. Bless their chubby little hearts.

There's no question that Bentsen, like other areas in the valley, is suffering from the effects of the flood a few years back, and the relentless drought.

Going to look up those birds in my Birds of Venezuela book. Interesting to see if they range that far.
