It was nice to be in Houston over the weekend. I found this little guy wandering around in a neighbor’s bushes. It’s an ovenbird, who was caught in the front passing through Texas. I took him to a safe, cat-free area to regain his strength and hopefully move on. We did some birding on Sunday in Russ Pitman Park in Bellaire, and got to see some of my favorite warblers: black and white, Blackburnian, and chestnut-sided. It was nice to be with friends and family.
Sweet April passed away last night. It’s going to be hard to get used to not having her here, she’s been a part of my life for so long. She was a very special dog. I’m planning a spot in the garden for her, so she can stay with us and have a nice spot in the sunshine.
