Mr. Ringer has organized the equinox bird lists up on Birdstack--go take a look (click the banner above). And join us for the next event in December.
I had the flu last week--no, it wasn't bird flu, but it might have been swine flu. I felt lousy all week, but did manage to go to the Ft. Worth Botanic Gardens on Friday, though I tried not to get too close to anyone. The weather was PERFECT, and here's the few birds I saw during the day:
Around the place:
- hawks, but I couldn't tell which kind
- rock doves--a million
- yellow-bellied sapsucker--one
- superb starlings--yes, they have a pair living INSIDE the greenhouse!
- some ducks
- great white egret--3
- peeps--a pair of fast moving ones on the beach
I also saw a possibly new bird, but I really needed some help with the identification to know for sure. It was a small, thirsty blond sparrow playing in the fountain at the gardens.
