Today’s new birding news.


Heck, I sure am running behind.  I just realized that it has been several days since my last post.  Still doing the same old fun stuff.  Birding, taking photographs, watching the Texas Rangers baseball games.  Life doesn’t get any better than this.

Ann, Jodie, and I went birding for the whole day on Monday.  I can’t believe we spent so much time at the park.  We really explored the whole place.  We went to the North Shore and saw some birds that we hadn’t seen at the South Shore.  Eastern Phoebes for one.  We also checked out the Isabel Harte park area and the equestrian area.

A week or so ago we saw a Zone-tailed Hawk, a lifer for me.  Those birds act like a Turkey Vulture, and nearly look like one, as least the way the sit on a tree branch.  Yesterday, we saw our first Bronzed Cowbird of the year.  We also saw three Painted Buntings, singing at the tops of some trees.  Caught a great photo of a Blue Grosbeak.

In other news, I had mentioned before that I have a compression fracture on my spine.  I think, and hope, that it may be healing.  This morning I had an injection of Re-clast to strengthen my bones.  It is an annual injection so I am good to go for a while.
