Bentsen State Park, Lower Rio Grande

What a stunning place - easily the best park visited so far.  Quite an array of birds and mostly around the lush visitor centre.  We managed to get decent views of Altimira Oriole today, plus a couple extra ticks.  Curve-billed Thrasher was a surprise, along with several Long-billed Thrashers and a Black Phoebe.  Total list after eight days is exactly 175 with 27 ticks so far.
