Horned Toad Sunday and other news

I thought that the title would get your attention.  Another example of my weird and eerie sense of humor.  This isn’t Horned Toad Sunday.  I just made that up.  🙂

Actually, I didn’t do too much today in the line of birding.  I spend most of the day doing the Sunday crossword.  However, I did get busy and put some new pictures in my bird album.  Also I put one new one in my animal album.  You can see all of them by going to my Photo Albums page by clicking them above, or on the blogroll at the right.

I won’t hold you in suspense, so I will show you the new animal photo here live and in color.  It is a Horned Toad, a.k.a. Horny Toad and Horned Frog.  They are getting scarce out here in west Texas.  Many things have been blamed for there demise.  Imported fire ants, disease, etc.  Nobody know for sure.  This is the first one that I have seen in several years.  He was crawling across the road out at San Angelo State Park.

Okay, you twisted my arm so I will also show you one of my new bird photos, too.  This one of the Western Meadowlarks that are starting to arrive.  Someone will probably tell me this is an Eastern Meadowlark.  They may be right.  I have a hard time telling them apart.
