Ruby-throated Hummingbirds at High Island, Texas

My wife and me are on a trip to Texas and the first stopover is the High Island area south of Houston.  It is world renowned for migration, especially passerines though today was some somewhat light of these little gems.  We did manage to see some nice Ruby-throated Hummingbirds plus a scattering of Magnolia, Black and White, Chestnut-sided, Yellow and Bay-breasted Warblers.  Wader wise it was superb with Piping Plover and Snowy Plover plus good numbers of Dowitchers and Willets.  We also saw our first Scissor-tailed Flycatchers...what a stunner!
