February Park Birding Tour

Well, today I conducted my first birding tour, and it was a resounding success.  I had a group eight participants.  The weather was cold and windy, but with sunny skies it started to warm a bit by the time we finished.  Ann was unable to join us as she is coming down with a cold, she thinks.  With the cold temps she didn’t want to take a chance on infecting anyone.

The people that joined me were Suzanne and Sid Johnson, Mike and Diane Coleman, Jackie Willis, Mary Creel, and a couple of very friendly tourists Paul and Joan Von Hardenberg from Connecticut, that were staying at the park.  It was fun visiting with all of them.  I hope to have a few more participants next month.

We were all avid birders, an it brings to mind a quote that was sent to me by Gary Lindahl  “There is a fine line between  hobby and mental illness.”

Sue Oliver, who didn’t attend as she had to work,  gave me a correction of her life list.  I had said that it was about 325.  Actually her list totals 361 with 307 of them all in the Concho Valley.

Happy Birding!!
