Our Feathered Visitors

Perula

This little cutie is a Northern Perula that is migrating through the Rio Grande Valley. Some say its timing is early for spring migration, while others have stated that Northern Perulas have actually wintered here near Brownsville, Texas. This beautiful photograph was taken by Terry Fuller on March 8, 2014 in South Padre Island where other type of visitors we know as Spring Breakers are populating the beach, and having a good time regardless of the unusually cold temperatures our region is experiencing.

A bird does not sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.-Maya Angelou. La Vida Valle is where I write about "la vida" life in the Rio Grande Valley. From this bi-cultural corner on the tip of Texas, I share my poems and spiritual and travel experiences. I also blog about the arts,nature and my passion for historic preservation and architecture. But most important, let's talk about "la vida" - living our lives - in a vacation state of mind. Contributions and comments are always welcome .
