I've stalled a little bit with my birding...call me a fair-weather birder if you wish, but it is too dang hot to go look at the same Texas summer birds.
Instead, I am using this heat as an excuse to tackle some artistic projects that I have been meaning to do for quite some time. Although the second project is a slower process and will be a time before anything is finished, I have begun the 1st and already have a few done. Here is one example below, and you can find more here as they are completed.
Welcome to Bird of the Day!
You might notice some recent changes to the blog. For one, the banner image above has changed from Mustang Island on the Gulf coast to a picture of a local birding spot near my house. Likewise, I plan to focus many of the upcoming posts on birding that area. On the right hand side of the page you will also see the addition of a new gadget that lists what birds have been seen in that area in the last 30 days. Further below, there is a link to ebird for more historic information about the birds seen at Bella Vista Creek. Feel free and contact me on the blog about what you think. Click on images to enlarge.
