We had a splendid time at Cherokee Trace Reserve Bed and Breakfast this weekend to celebrate our 1/3 century anniversary. I'll post all my trip photos eventually, but I first will start with a blog about the birds I saw. I was able to add a couple birds to my life list. We stopped along the road in East Texas to observe a colony of Cliff Swallows. We crawled under the bridge to see their mud nests.
They are hard to photography because they move so fast!
I also got a nice roadrunner photo, but, of course, this bird is not a new one to me.
This one was a new one for me. I didn't get a photo, but I did get a good look at a huge pileated woodpecker. He looks just like Woody.
