I'm pretty happy to have a TX total of 310 after a trip to southwest Texas.
New birds included these pictured: Scaled Quail (lifer), Hooded Oriole, Bullock's Oriole, Harris' Hawk, Black-chinned Hummingbird (lifer).
Others that I can think of off-hand: Rufous-crowned sparrow (lifer), Black-throated Sparrow, Ash-throated Flycatcher (lifer), Western Kingbird, Canyon Towhee (lifer), Canyon Wren (lifer), Cactus Wren (lifer), Black-tailed Gnatcatcher (lifer), Blue Grosbeak, White-throated Swift (lifer), Common Poorwill (lifer), Cassin's Sparrow (lifer), Bell's Vireo, Long-billed Thrasher, and White-tipped Dove.
