Comments:
Given the conditions today (cold; southward wind; not much rain), we went out expecting a minor fallout and got one. Amazingly, we didn’t even bird half of the oak motte at Lafitte’s today, nor one of the drips, nor the prairie trail! Birding may be even better later today. Birding companions: Debra B., Richard Y.
