This blog experiment is an evolution of emailed "Nature Reports" to friends and family about my adventures and misadventures watching birds and learning to take photos. We will see how the encouragement of You Just Have to Start a Blog turns out in real life.

As my retirement is now a reality, I will have much more time for chasing the birds. At the moment I am exploring the Great Texas Coastal Birding Trail. But, I have plans for a trip to New Mexico in the fall.

When the weather is bad, I will work on my Photoshop skills.

So, drop by often. Never can tell when I will have posted a new photo of a puddle or a flower or bird on a sign post and have a story to go with it.
