March 17, 2014  |  Music  |  Comments Off on SXSW

HI Everyone, SXSW is now over and Wow What a Week! Gotta love living in Austin as the world comes to our Doorstep. Great Weather and while one incident took place I felt it really did not effect the outcome of the festival which was to see a ton of up and coming bands.

I will post everything we saw in a bit.. but here are some of the highlights…

Hornsby Bend is close to Austin and servers as part of the water treatment plant. It can be a great place for birds, but on this night we just got a great sunset..

Inks Lake National Fish Hatchery

March 3, 2014  |  Birds  |  Comments Off on Inks Lake National Fish Hatchery

We traveled to the Inks lake National fish hatchery to see a long tailed duck.. while not uncommon in many areas, it is uncommon in Texas and a pretty rare sighting..It was right near the parking area and kinda a funny joke with all the birders pulling in and out.. ” here to see the long tailed duck?” hehe..” yep…” …
