Hey Strangers


(Lincoln's Sparrow and Ladder-backed Woodpecker above)
Hey strangers. Sorry for the lack of blog bloggin' but I have to drive 15 minutes to get blog world access (blogspot is blocked where I am - what a total bummer, come on!). Trying to figure out how to get this fixed...
(Lincoln's Sparrow above)
Anyway. Hill Country welcomed me with open arms again. I've heard and seen a handful of Golden-cheeked Warblers so far, along with the other regular birds around here.I've seen a few of my armadillo friends too. Good stuff. This place needs some serious rain, yikes! Hopefully that'll happen in the near future.
Nothing crazy to report at this point, sorry not blog hopping! (Olive Sparrow below)

I hope you get some rain. I'm just to your north, and we're under a state of emergency due to wildfires.

I think we have Lincoln Sparrows around here. I am trying to learn how to distinguish between them. Your photos help so much.

Congratulations on the award from Texwisgirl! :-)

Welcome back to Texas! You're totally right about the Hill Country needing rain... we need it up here in Dallas as well! Glad to see you getting reacquainted with some old avian pals again! Looking forward to more goodies from your Texas wanderings :)

Beautiful close-ups of the sparrows. I like the subtle tones and textures. I do get detached from nature sometimes, too, so these pictures are a treat.
