Have you considered the Lower Rio Grande Valley in Texas?  I went on a 
birding trip there last year during the second week on April and saw 
over 200 sp., over 60 of them birds I had never seen before! It was an 
awesome trip.  We covered different habitats starting  from South Padre 
Island and going up the Rio Grand Valley to Santa Ana NWF and Estero 
Llano Grande State Park among other places. There's an ABA birding guide 
to the Lower Rio Grande that has lots of info which I have and I'd be 
glad to loan out.  You can contact me off line if you want more info.

This year I am planning a trip to SE Arizona, leaving in a couple of 
weeks.  So if anyone has any suggestions for birding there, I'd be 
interested.  I am planning on spending time in Madera Canyon and 
Patagonia-Sonoita Preserve as well was stopping at the Arizona Sonora 
Desert Museum.

A little OT- looking for some birding info.
  I am going to Texas to the Galveston Featherfest Birding Festival in
April (11-14) but I have no itinerary before or after. If anyone is 
with spring birding in Texas I'd very much appreciate some info on good 
  to go and what birds I might see. The festival is heavily weighted 
shore  birds, so I am more interested in looking for songbirds, raptors,
etc, aka land  birds. My stay is somewhat open-ended, and I could go a 
earlier if there  is a good reason. I'm not ruling out traveling to New
Mexico or SE Arizona  either.
