We’ve made four trips to Texas that I’ve recorded, starting in 2002–that was still using slides, and in fact I’ve just dug out an Altamira Oriole to put on the page (which is strictly in phylogenetic order, so the oriole comes at the end).  The others were in ’03, ’05 and ’08.  The 2003 trip was the only one that included the Hill Country–memorable for the image of a male Painted Bunting which appeared on the cover of Birders World for June 2006.  Throughout,  as on the rest of the site, locations are carefully noted (the one exception for now is the oriole; detailed records for my slide period are at home in Northampton and I’m currently in Paris).
