Lafitte’s Cove in Galveston is just one of the area’s prime locations for viewing neotropical migrants. Laffite’s Cove Nature Society (“LCNS”) does an excellent job of managing the property. It’s a long flight across the Gulf of Mexico taking about 18 hours. Some will “fall out”, dropping down for food and water before continuing on their migration. This Yellow Warbler came over to the water drip and stayed for about one minute before disappearing into the woods. I have lived here most of my life and this is the first time I have witness some of this event. Had I only known what I was really missing. Nature has so much to offer.
