They all opposed new border wall construction because of the damage it would do to key birding areas, and they were a major presence at a rally at Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge the next day. While Santa Ana has been temporarily spared, Bentsen State Park and other beloved birding hotspots remain under extreme threat. Photo © Jeffrey Gordon Contents 4 4 5 6 12 18 26 26 18 6 12
