We had another pleasant bird walk last Sunday with the guidance of Shelia Hargis & Laurie Foss, who were both very patient to newbies like us. We went to Webberville Park which is located in the far eastern area of Travis County. The highlight of the walk included sightings of a pair of red-shouldered hawks and bald eagles in their nests. They were too far to photograph but it was still exciting to watch them using our binoculars. Here’s the list done by Laurie during our walk:

  1. Keep an eye out for my images of White-Crowned Sparrow next week! It will be very rare for us to post the same species within a couple of weeks of each other! The LBH is a great shot.

    I think coins in fountains, wishing wells or on rocks probably all have the same ritual origin.
