Well, I’m back home from my BIG Texas adventure with Uncle David.. and BOY did we have FUN! Continue reading
After a fantastic day yesterday birding the Nature Conservancy’s Love Creek Preserve with our friend, Martin, we’re heading west today! SO thankful to Martin for spending the day with us and to the Nature Conservancy for allowing us access to their unbelievably beautiful preserve! Pictures will follow. Bird # 300 was a Black-capped Vireo! Wooohoooo!
We’ll be in Junction this morning and will bird our way west to Alpine to try for Elf Owl tonight. Birding the Davis Mountains tomorrow.
Internet is spotty.. But I will post again ASAP!
I’m at 304 now… 400 here I come!!!
I gave my youngest one final kiss on the forehead, turned out the light, and started walking out of his room. With his eyes half-closed as he began to enter dreamland he quietly uttered,
“Text me when you get to 300, okay mom?”
I can tell he REALLY gets it. 🙂 and boy do I feel loved!
Isn’t it great when the birds are there exactly when and where you want them to be?! 🙂
I leave Sunday for the BIGGEST of the Mom’s Big Year trips so far and still have oodles of items on the to-do list. I’m starting to accept the fact that they’re just not going to get done. I kept thinking I had another week and it dawned on me the other day that my plane leaves for Austin early THIS Sunday!
I texted one of my dearest and oldest friends yesterday and confided in her that with everything going on — I just didn’t feel quite ready for this big and exciting adventure.
“But is Texas ready for YOU? ……..THAT is the question.”
Here’s to another 30+ years of friendship, Tamar! Thank you for always dishing out EXACTLY what I need to hear when I need it most!
My day in 4 words. Work. Birds. Chocolate. Laundry.
In that order. 🙂
Didn’t think I’d get to squeeze in some birding to day with end-of the semester grades due soon and lots of loose ends to tie up at work….. but I did! And the little bit of birding I did do was quite productive. Chestnut-sided Warbler in the yard, Olive-sided Flycatcher nearby and Common Nighthawks streaming in over Centennial Lake this eve.
