Leakey, Texas. Population 387.
That's pretty, huh? It's so pretty I've decided to go back there yet again. Yup, back to Leakey (Lake-y, not a leaky faucet), Texas for one more field season with the Golden-cheeked Warblers. The initial plan was to stay in Mississippi and work for Zac's project but we both agreed I would likely lose my mind if I had to stay in north central Mississippi for 5 months straight. Hill Country will be a little bit different without Zac or Melissa there (the three of us worked together for 3 seasons, it's where Zac and I met) but I know the area well and have an odd attachment to the place. Last year was the first year in 3 years I wasn't there, and I really missed it. So I'm Looking forward to heading back that way for work and play! The season is from early March through most of June (more or less) and then I'll come back to MS and possibly do some other field work at Zac's sites for a couple months. But right now I'm looking forward to Leakey! Watery Wednesday Skywatch SOOC
