However, we did have some very good birding over at the Anahuac Wildlife Refuge where we investigated two new areas for us. They were both wonderful places and we'll be including them in the future. We took one of our days to claim as our Bird-a-Thon day and wound up with 98 different species. Had we really worked the day, I'm sure we could have accumulated at least 20 more species. But, being the sleepy heads we are, we didn't get up and going until about 8 a.m. and we didn't even stop at the wooded areas in High Island on our way home for the day. After we got home, we found out that had we worked just a little harder, we just might have had a chance to be the winners of our local Audubon chapter's bird-a-thon competition. Oh, well.

Throughout this entire week, my dear, sweet Hubby allowed himself to be generally ignored and left alone so that my Birdlady friend and I could simply immerse ourselves in birdwatching. It was a wonderful week and, from the rumors and whisperings I'm already hearing, this trip may be on the agenda for next spring as well.
Y'all take care.
