A Walk in the Park

The other day we decided to wander through Auditorium Shores in Austin, just to see what’s there. We didn’t expect to see any birds other than Grackles and Doves. But as always, we found many interesting things, including a bird we’d never seen before. This is called a “Lifer.” A bird you see for the very first time. Who knew? Luckily, we were out there to explore.

Great-Tailed Grackle. Most Texans hate them because they’re noisy and arrive in overwhelming numbers. For now, I still think they’re interesting.

Walking along the path beside Town Lake, we found Sadie. Her owner was throwing tennis balls into the lake. With great glee, Sadie recovered them.

About EagleAye

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.
