Hello Texbirders,
Regularly scheduled Monday-Saturday bird walks are on again now that the
government is back to work. A great group of people showed up this morning
and the bird walk started out fun with a very close SINGING Spotted
Sandpiper. It ended well too with extended close views of an Altamira
Oriole feeding just off the ground, just off the trail. A second one was
calling, and visible, in a nearby mesquite tree. In between though the song
birds played hard-to-get. They were there, as the list below attests, but
often they were heard only or quick glimpses. Tomorrow is another day and
we will go out and do it again. Meet at the Visitor Center at 8:30 am to
join us.
