Birds in Balcones!

We recently had the privilege of hosting guests at Casa Francesca that were avid birders!  Noel and June spent three weeks in the community photographing and documenting the birds that were present in Balcones de Majagual during the months of February and March and they were kind enough to supply us with a list of the birds the noted during their stay!  Let's see which ones you can spot while you are here!  Thank so much Noel and June!
