Smaller Gems at South Padre Birding Center

 The Solitary Sandpiper greets visitors to the Center.  It is the most consistent bird there because it is always hunting small crustaceans in the bank adjacent to the boardwalk.
  Usually these Sandpipers are at the shore of ponds where they can't be seen so close up.

Soras and Marsh Wrens are heard but seldom seen in ponds throughout North America. 

Common Gallinules breed in Minnesota and are often confused with the American Coot.
