Going to the Big Bend again


Monday morning we are heading back to our favorite place, the Big Bend area of west Texas.  This time we are hoping to get in on the spring migration if we are not too late.  A couple of weeks ago we attempted the trip but returned after one day because of some health issues.  Now we are feeling up to snuff again.  We will be staying at the Gage Hotel in Marathon on Monday night.  Then Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday we will be at the Far-Flung Casitas in Study Butte.

Here are a few photos that I managed to get this week between the cold spells that were coming and going the past few days.

Enjoy the photos and click on any of them to see enlargements.  I’ll be back with a new post next weekend.  You can also follow me on Facebook.

Blog Changes


I just wanted you to take note of some changes to my pages, as you can see listed across the top.   I have added a page with a list some fun places to stay at and visit.  In addition, since this blog is about birding, I have also added a page of birding sites.  Just open those pages and click on the links.  And of course, my galleries page has links to my two photo albums.

As for the snow falling across my blog, it will be a short winter, as the snowfall will stop on January 4.

Happy Birding!!
