Greetings Texbirders,
When we arrived at Willow Lakes this morning, we were greeted by a large “flock” of Least Grebes – they seemed to be enjoying each other’s company – at least a dozen played immediately in front of us. A substantial number of Tree Swallows also frolicked before our eyes. Again, today, a Northern Beardless-Tyrannulet allowed the entire group (16) of us to watch it forage – to glean insects and spiders from the leaves of a large Mesquite tree – everyone watched and got good photos. Come join the fun – Monday through Saturday at 8:30 am.
