In prickly-pear cactus bordering the road, look (and listen) for Cactus Wren, and watch for Curve-billed Thrashers perched on the barbed-wire fences. Return to TX 186 and go east approximately 2 miles to the Tres Corales Pond, an extensive freshwater lake where migratory waterfowl and Black-bellied Whistling-Ducks abound. Portions of these properties are private, so restrict birding to the shoulder of TX 186 (the pond is easily viewed through a spotting scope).
