Ann and I went to San Angelo State Park this morning to take care of the bird blind. We got the water turned on a few days ago, and park personnel drained and cleaned the little pool for us. So this morning we were out there with our weedeater, getting it spruced up.
We spotted our first American Robin, a guaranteed harbinger of spring. We also noticed that the mesquite are starting to get their leaves. That also, is a good sign of spring. We sat in the blind for awhile and watched the usual population of birds for this time of year. We also spotted three Northern Bobwhite and the Spotted Towhee pictured below.
This photo to the left is a Bewick’s Wren that has built a nest on our patio in a decorative bird house that Ann and put out there. Perhaps we may have a little family there.
