Here I am, about to embark on a business trip to what is considered the birdiest state in the nation, and I’m very concerned that I won’t have a moment free to enjoy the avian abundance of the Lone Star State. However, where there’s a will, there’s a way. I’ve packed my bins (no camera though) and will be on the lookout for Swainson’s Hawks and Mississipi Kites soaring over my hotel.
In a proactive expression of sour grapes, I will point out that the Dallas area doesn’t offer a whole lot I haven’t seen this year. Still, I’d hate to leave Texas without at least a glimpse of its natural treasures. Wish me luck…
