abstract butterfly

duck creek

Today at lunch I went to the Duck Creek Greenbelt. I snapped pictures of herons, and looked at warblers in the cheap French binoculars.

I am not good at identifying warblers from among the dozens we have in Texas. Warblers are almost as hard as sparrows, and I am apt to mis-identify something with a designation suitable only to the west Texas desert. After much post-mortem with google images, though, I theorize that I spotted a common yellowthroat flitting around Duck Creek.

I read today about wooded placed in north-east Texas, and thought of which I'd like to visit.
