I drove out to Middle Concho Park yesterday afternoon. Earlier in the day, I had been to my doctor to have a biopsey taken from a little thingee on my neck. I don’t recall what it was called, something that ends in ‘noma’. Anyway, it is minor, but afterward I got restless. A beautiful day, and I had to get outside. However, for some reason or other, the birds must have been taking a siesta elsewhere, as there wasn’t much activity, except for a bunch of woodpeckers.
But one bright light was that we spotted a pair of Ash-throated Flycatchers (Myiarchud cinerascens). The first ones that we have spotted this season. So maybe this is a sign of things to come. I am anxious to get back out and see what else will be arriving. Click on either picture to see an enlargement.
