A couple of days ago Celeste spotted the first of this year's Painted Buntings at her feeder. Wasn't long before they started visiting ours as well...
What a beauty!
So far I've only seen one at a time, and have yet to see a female... but I know before long, there will be many around.
And... this is a picture I posted last year, but it's still one of my favorites...
We saw this girl at the local H.E.B. (grocery)... a dead-ringer for one of my favorite birds.
She allowed me take her picture... said she didn't know about Painted Buntings... but oh my! she couldn't have done better!
Tomorrow is our last day here in Glen Rose. Finally finished the medical stuff that needed done. The water line isn't finished, but hopefully Victor won't return to work real soon and will have time to work on it.
We haven't decided yet on a route to drive to Ohio. It's been a couple of years since we drove the Natchez Trace... from Natchez up to Nashville... and are thinking it would be beautiful this time of year. It's a 2 lane / 55mph National Park road and has a couple of campgrounds as well as lots of informational pullovers.
Don't know... we'll see.
The time here passed very quickly... but I'm getting excited about seeing family in Ohio soon.
That's All For Today!
