Clay-colored Robin, Turdus grayi:  Quinta Mazatlan; McAllen, Texas
     Quinta Mazatlan is a historica Adobe mansion, and most importantly a birding center in the heart of McAllen, Texas.  I visited Quinta Mazatlan last Thursday where I added this Clay-colored Robin to my life list.  Also known as the Clay-colored Thrush, it is the national bird of Costa Rica.  McAllen, Texas is at the northern end of its range where it is rapidly expanding. I found this bird, with another of its kind, skulking in the underbrush at this manmade watering hole.  Click this link for more info on birding at Quinta Mazatlan:
