The monthly Adult Birding Adventure at the San Angelo State Park, was washed out this morning. But, heck, it wasn’t my fault. Ann and I went out early about 8:00AM to feed the birds so they would be active. The temp then was up to about 15 degrees. But the sun was shining brightly and no wind, so it was not unpleasant.
After doing that chore we checked the lake for interesting sightings. There was a light coating of ice near the shoreline and there were several hundred gulls walking on the ice or wading on the water near by. After that we went back to ths South Gate-house to greet our “participants”, or fellow birders. Alas, we were all alone. Nary a person showed up at the appointed time of 9:00AM. So we shall wait and try again next month on Feb. 13. 9:00AM, South Gate. Hopefully the weather will be more co-operative.
I guess I should mention that while Ann and I were spending a few minutes making those observation early this morning, we did see beside the Ring-billed Gulls, we saw Northern Pelicans, House Finches, Red-winged Blackbirds, Savannah Sparrows, Meadowlarks, Northern Mockingbirds, at least one Loggerhead Shrike and a Great Blue Heron.
I now have a “Now Showing” page on this blog. There you can hear about the various showings of my photography.
