Birds of a Feather: Why Young Adults are Flocking to McAllen, TX

The McAllen area has established itself as a bonafide bird-watching destination, where residents can catch glimpses of birds seen nowhere else in the country. Quinta Mazatlan, a Spanish Revivalstyle adobe mansion turned urban sanctuary, attracts many of these otherwise elusive “Valley specialties.”

The Plain Chachalacas nest in the palms and sing a raucous song that sounds like “get the ball,” and the spunky Olive Sparrows with beautiful green backs have calls that sound as though they are sung to the beat of a bouncing ball. The two would make quite an entertaining duet.
