On the Road Again


Yesterday, I went to Stephenville to make a presentation. I went HWY 281 to enjoy the wildflowers, which I did (see photo for an example).
I didn't get much of a birding opportunity at 70 mph, but I did see some black vultures in Jack and Palo Pinto counties and some wild turkeys in Jack County. I also saw my first great egret of the year in Archer County.
I stopped by Wild Bird Rescue and saw my first black-chinned hummingbird (a female) of the spring.
Tomorrow I am heading out to San Marcos for the weekend (no, not a birding trip.) I hope to see a few birds while tooling down the highway.
Good birding!
