Howdy Texbirders, I spent the morning on the TC Dike and Skyline Drive. Large flocks of Eared Grebes (as usual), Red-breasted Mergansers (more than I saw when I was there a few weeks ago), and a wonderful showing of Bonaparte's Gulls working the flocks of grebes and mergansers. Of note were two Horned Grebes about a half mile down Skyline Drive in the Bay. I sure hope everyone can get out and bird during our lovely UTC spring. : ) Dennis West Houston Harris County -- W.
