It was good that the rain finally let up today so it was more fun to get out and go birding. Debra and I birded north of Rockport and checked out the wintering Burrowing Owl midday today. We also checked various areas for ducks and grebes and were dismayed at the near lack of any waterbirds at all. The Rockport CBC on Saturday (1/2) may slip way down on the number of species this year if there isn't a great influx of birds before then. We were delighted to see that that the family of Whooping Cranes that feeds along the highway at a wildlife-feeder that is set up for them was there having lunch - mama and daddy vigilantly watching for predators and juvenile chowing down.
