First, I heard Great Horned Owls, so I assume that means they are no longer
babysitting because I haven't heard them for several months.
Last night, I was at Commons Ford Ranch (near Bee Caves). I birded from the
house at the end of the road (before private property) through the field to
the large pecan trees closer to the river.

This morning, I birded along the creek at St. Edwards Park, with Jane
Tillman and there were many other birders out. The parking lot (pl) and
area where the red and blue trails meet were most productive, willows
quiet. Weird morning, with no vultures or flyover large waders, and I did
not have time to look for waterthrush.
