The last few weeks have been very full. I traveled to High Island, Texas in mid-April for my annual bird migration trip. Had a great time, as usual. After a few trips, you get familiar with the area and terrain and its like going home. You never know what you'll see on these trips and that is the thrill of it.

Heck, you don't even have to get out of the car to see good birds, as evidenced above.
Anybody care to count how many birds are in this next photo?

I'll quit boring you for the moment. Y'all take care.
