I headed back to the Zacate Creek end of the trail to my rental vehicle. I ensured my reservation for a flight to Dayton, Ohio and headed back to San Antonio. I celebrated a bit for my good fortune in Texas and Louisiana where I had great birds and got good photographs. I bought a first class ticket, actually the only one remaining, and enjoyed the luxury on my way back home. I needed the rest and relaxation as well as a good meal. Tomorrow would be a 10 hour drive to Delaware to be on the pelagic trip with Paulagics out of Lewes, Delaware. How's that for becoming part of the jet set?!!
White-collared Seedeater is new for the year, raising the total to 697 +2. Onward and upward!
