Golden-crowned Sparrow - SPI Convention Center - May 17, 2013

Birgit and Rex Stanford and Erik Breden found this Golden-crowned Sparrow at the South Padre Island Convention Center today.  This is a TBRC Review Species, and it will likely be the first accepted from the LRGV.  Documentations and photos are highly desired! 

Thanks to this trio for the excellent find and prompt reporting! 

Prairie Warbler - Roselawn Cemetery - McAllen, Texas

Jon McIntyre found this Prairie Warbler at Roselawn Cemetery in McAllen, Texas on May 11, 2013.  This is a scarce migrant in the LRGV with most records near the coast.  I was able to relocate it later the same day.
