I stopped by a Fry's electronics in Plano but bought nothing. Then I headed south. I arrived at Trinity River Audubon Center at 10 a.m. The morning proved overcast and a bit cool. I began to walk the trails. In the nearly two hours I spent there,
I saw some first-of-season birds--the fantastically colorful Painted Bunting, the
deeply blue Indigo Bunting and the singing prince of the prairie, the Dickcissel.
Gone are the Winter sparrows and Dark-Eyed Juncos, the Winter ducks and the Yellow-Rumped Warblers. Here are the Western Kingbirds and Painted and Indigo Buntings and Dickcissel and Scissor-Tailed Flycatchers.
I then drove my nephew's store, and had a nice visit with he and my brother. I took a nice photo of the two of them. I left them to it, and went to get lunch at Denny's. I ate two helpings of egg whites, a grilled ham slice, a bowl of fruit and two slices of turkey bacon.
I headed home and took Beatrice for a walk. She found the rabbits fascinating. In the evening, my wife and I headed to Thai Pan. I had shrimp with broccoli in oyster sauce, while she had tofu with mixed vegetables. We shared Summer rolls with peanut sauce.
Now we are watching the Ken Burns national park documentary. Then we will watch a Ray Milland movie about ghosts.
