HIti Texbirders,
The winds lessened and the mosquitos flourished. But that's food for the
birds, right? Numbers were still low today but, happily, birds were
singing. Long-billed Thrashers were perched up serenading everywhere we
went today. It was fun watching two Harris's Hawks sitting so close to each
other on a branch they looked like one bird ... well, maybe one bird with
two tails. Even got to watch one preening the other's head for a while.
Guided walks leave the Visitor Center at 8:30 am every day but Sunday. All
are welcome.
