This is what I wanted you to see. It's what people here call a resaca. Resacas are actually old river channels. You see, the Rio Grande, like all rivers, changes its course over the centuries. This leaves old river channels on the landscape. Not all of the Scrub country has these, but where there are resacas, there are often lots of birds.
