Notes & Observations
10/19/22 – The cute but vicious Loggerhead Shrike is often found on barbed wire or thorny branches. It grabs a prey and impales it on the thorns. I usually don’t hear the Shrike vocalize but I got lucky and heard it recently and got to take a new recording of it. My husband and I always keep an eye out for this bird when driving around or going on a walk.

Leading a bird walk at Pearsall Park with Bexar Audubon Society
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.
Practicing as a birding guide at Pearsall Park
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.
