Fall in the Panhandle

Well, once again I’ve managed to not post anything for several months.  My only excuse it laziness-I go birding nearly every morning that I’m not working, but processing photos is really a pain in the ass and so I let it build up until it is really daunting. It has really not been all that…

Photo Dump

I finally got around to editing the photos from the last 3 months and so, here ya go.  All the photos were taken at Lake Meredith unless otherwise noted. American Avocets. These are among my favorite birds. How can you not love a bird with blue legs and a snooty bill? American Pipit. These aren’t…

Winter Birds at my Feeder

Here are the last few pictures I took in 2017 from my feeders at home. 2017 was a pretty good year for birding, I saw 163 species of birds and never left the panhandle. Highlights would have to include the nesting Western Grebes and Clark’s Grebes at Meredith and the Red-breasted Nuthatch that’s been hanging…

Last Week at Palo Duro Canyon

Early Fall at Palo Duro Canyon

Catching Up

I should be ashamed, I’ve neglected this blog the last couple of weeks and I’ve no real excuse-I’ve been birding, I’ve been taking pictures, and even processing them. I’ve got them ready to post, I just haven’t done it. there’s been a couple of birthdays, my own was one, I turned 62 this year and…
