Back to Birding

Raising a child is time consuming. Since Hannah was born, Shey and I have focused entirely on her and not so much on our hobbies. Well, Hannah is getting older (2mos+) and it’s time she understands what her parents are all about. That means it’s time to get back to a little birding at a favorite spot in Hornsby Bend. Okay, birding from the car next to Hannah, but it’s still birding. We had a pretty good day of it too.

Monk Parakeet. Yes, these are wild. A rare and lucky treat for us.

Loads of Red-Winged Blackbirds were out, but often hiding in the tall grass.

We love birding, but we love all of nature. Couldn’t resist these turtles in the waves.

I’ve been birding since I was a kid, but my earliest birding was a much different kind of bird. This is an F-5F or a T-38 Talon. An awesome military training aircraft.

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.

    I love birds pictures. We are deprived of them. Just crows and magpies here. Hannah is just two months old, isn’t it asking too much from her.
