Notes & Observations
5/21/22 – The Carolina Wren has become a frequent presence on my bird walks around town. This songstress of the forest loves to sing loudly over other nearby birds. The up-and-down of its melodic song is bouncy and omnipresent.
I remember getting my first good look at this bird and its white eyebrow when I lived in an apartment across town. It was perched on the railing of the dog park singing its heart out.
This morning I led a bird walk at Pearsall Park for Bexar Audubon Society. I’ve been looking forward to this bird walk for months and was excited to share the park with a bunch of new people. I was hopeful for good birds today to excite the first-time visitors but you never know what you’ll see.
160 acres in the heart of Boerne, Texas, the Cibolo Nature Center offers miles of trails through five distinct ecosystems. In 1988, Carolyn Chipman Evans, her husband, Brent Evans, and a handful of friends envisioned a place to connect their community with nature. Beginning with a segment of the Cibolo Creek and its neighboring land and wildlife, this group of advocates worked tirelessly to ensure the creek’s preservation.
With my first official gig as a birding guide coming up next weekend for the Bexar Audubon Society, I wanted to get some practice in leading friends through Pearsall Park where the bird walk is going to take place. The four of us arrived at 8 AM to nice, cool, partly cloudy weather.
