December 16th: Chisos Mountains and Rio Grande Village

The morning of December 16th, my uncle captured some video of a Mexican Jay and a Cactus Wren outside of our room in the Chisos Mountains.

We also saw a Black-crested Titmouse hanging around the lodgings. Before breakfast, my uncle and I checked out a trail. We saw some small wrens, a Greater Roadrunner, a White-tailed doe and her fawn. After breakfast, we headed Southeast and drove to the Rio Grande Village. It is a popular camping and boating spot along the Rio Grande River. This is video of one of the campgrounds and a view towards Boquillas Canyon. We saw flycatchers and a Golden-fronted Woodpecker at the campground.

Looking East on American side from same location.

At the river, we saw a Black Phoebe catching flys over the river from the near bank.
We then went to Boquillas Canyon.

Quite a day!
