November 20, 2000, Mustang Island, San Patricio County, Texas.
Photos taken by Patty Beasley and used with her permission. "They were all over that area, flying to and fro ... many coming in to seemingly roost in the palms as the sun set. ... There were hundreds in
the residential area (which is named, appropriately enough, the Lost Colony)."
This was the first full day of sun after a wet, cold spell in Texas. About seventy miles south-southwest of Port Lavaca and east across the bay from Corpus Christi.
