When we decided to leave Estero Llano State Park, we headed over to The Old Pump House in Hidalgo. They say the birding is excellent there. Of course, the wind kept picking up and the only thing we saw were a couple of doves and lots of kiskadees. They must adapt to the winds better.
We did take some pictures around the park though and of the border wall in this area. We've been to the Old Pump House several times so we didn't take a tour today.
The Old Pump House
This is not a section of the Rio Grande River but an area which was dug out to get water back to the pump house after a hurricane diverted the river away from the pump house.
There is a couple sprawled out on the grass enjoying the day below.

Here are some pictures of the Border Wall around the Old Pump House
I can't imagine anyone getting through the bars without removing an appendege
