wet hawks

The rain fell in the morning. By Noon, it let up a good bit. I went walking in Heritage Park in Sachse.

Many trees had rather soggy raptors atop them. Two held Red-Tailed Hawks. One held a Red-Shouldered Hawk, Two held American Kestrels. One held a Cooper's Hawk. Even the carnivorous non-raptor the Loggerhead Shrike was stop a tree. They were all trying to make up for lost time due to the rains.

I ate a chicken sandwich from WhataBurger for lunch.

After work, I walked in heavy mists at Oak Point Park. I encountered a crayfish in the middle of the sidewalk. It was cute.

We went to dinner at the Tex/Mex restaurant Cristina's. I enjoyed my pechuga limon with borracho beans.
