Almost instantly we spotted a few dragonflies flying around and some small butterflies including an Antillean Saddlebag.
Antillean Saddlebag - Tramea insularis
Short-billed Dowitcher - Limnodromus griseus
Peccary - Tayassuidae
Song Sparrows - Melospiza melodia
We walked over to the other side of the refuge as we had been tipped off that there were Great Horned Owls chicks sitting in a nest in a tree by the path. Once there we started looking for the owls and after amount 10 minutes of looking we stopped for a drink when Dad suddenly spotted them sitting in the nest just as we had been told they would be.
Great Horned Owls - Bubo virginianus
Once we finished photographing the owls we headed back to the car and started our journey to Port Aransas, after checking in to our hotel we headed out to see the local reserves so we will know where to go tomorrow.
