Travis Farm Park, the little small-field park in Murphy, is no longer next door to an agricultural field. It now borders a new housing subdivision under construction. This disrupted the two Red-Tailed Hawks who were living there, catching rodents in the field. There are other fields and parks nearby. But I was sorry to see this field go.
The news remains full of the unsettling and unacceptable story of undocumented children being separated from their parents at the border.This misconduct of our immigration policy should stop now.
Monday night a shooting happened at 11 p.m. at the Kroger just up the road from my work. This is not an area where this happens often. I go to that little shopping center for lunch many days a week. It sounds as if teens were shooting at each other. I have not heard the full details. I went there yesterday--the pedestrian traffic there had not reduced. I suppose more people than me feel the shooting was uncharacteristic.
Last night I took a walk in Glendover Park. A female Ruby-Throated Hummingbird foraged near a Juniper tree.
