Interesting day in Hart County. I saw my first sharp-shinned hawk of the fall and moments later I saw another one chasing a Cooper's hawk whch was carrying a captured pigeon in its talons! A personal milestone...I passed my # 400 ABA bird on my way to 417 during a recent jaunt to the southwest. We went to Big Bend National Park in Texas; even in the "off-season", it's incredible. Amazing birds, amazing scenery and hiking. Vermillion flycatchers, Mexican jays, and common black-hawks! I would certainly recommend it as a destination. Good birding, Steve Kistler Hart Co.
