Hello Everyone!

Mary and I did a Hackberry Flat survey today with Jerry Vanbebber. It was
overcast and the wind switched to the North but that didn't bother the
shorebirds
as we had 20 species for the day. Best birds of the day were
Black-bellied Plover,
Sanderling, and Stilt Sandpiper.

Goodest Birding,

Mary and Lou Truex
