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.
