Hey there,

See eBird checklists below. Saturday the Quicks and I had a good birding day out in Mason county with Greater White-fronted Geese flying over, lots of sparrows (crazy numbers along CR 152), Winter Wren, and some ducks including 3 Hooded Mergansers on a pond along 2618 I think.
Also I took the family out to St Edwards Park in NW Austin this morning and came across a Baltimore Oriole and a Gray Catbird.

Good birding,
