We spent the afternoon on the King Ranch in Kingsville, Texas. King Ranch is a huge (825,000 acre) ranch that was established in 1853 and has morphed from just a cattle ranch into a huge agribusiness. They also give wildlife tours and we hoped to see javelinas (we did), alligators (we did), bob cats (we didn’t) and lots of birds and deer (we also did). I saw two birds I’d never seen before, a cardinal and a green jay. Both were colorful and I managed to get a few decent shots at feeding stations on the ranch.
