A good day today; sunny and warm; got a lot of gardening done. Even found time to bake some cookies, because our grandson is coming for the weekend!

Today, I'm posting birds and animals we were lucky enough to see in TX and N.M. I'm trying to get all the rest of the trip pics up; then I'll shut down the laptop until Sept, when we go out to Montauk.

Here's my menagerie.......

awesome awesome animal and bird pics. The peacocks and the owls were most striking

I loved the large owl with his startling face and the Burrowing Owls were a real treat; I never thought I'd be where I'd see one!

Wish our fly catchers looked like that!

The Vermilion may be the gaudiest, but the Scissor-tailed is the most spectacular! They were mostly in pairs and they sat on the ground a lot. Great for pics!
