Fist Bird Walk at Dallas Retirement Village

This morning Jeanette and I got to lead our first Bird Walk at Dallas Retirement Village.  It was origninally on the schedule for April 4, but Covid-19 canceled that. So today, adhearing to the protocol of Phase 1, we had 10 participants, all wearing face masks, and keeping 6 feet of distance.  We counted 40 birds total, representing 14 different species. You can see the observation list here. The plan is to continue every Saturday morning with these limits of people, masks and distance until they are lifted.  

The most exciting bird of the day was this fledgling Western Bluebird.  I just missed by fractions of a second geting the dad in the frame feeding this young one.  At a second Western Bluebird nesting site, we got to see another dad waiting for us to leave before taking a mouthful of insects to the box.
