I've been having a great time in southern Texas with Nova. The garden surrounding the Laguna Atascosa National Wildlife Refuge visitor center is in our back yard. We've been getting great looks at Tropical Parula and a female Blue Bunting the last few days. Temperature in the 80's today and lots of birds......January's not so bad down here.
