New Life at Armand Bayou Nature Center

I've been a volunteer at Armand Bayou Nature Center for over 10 years now but I still get those WOW moments, this was one of them, meeting the 4 offspring of a 9 Banded Armadillo on the Ladybird Trail (no sign of Mum).  In case you didn't know, female Armadillos always have 4 identical offspring, same sex, same dna.  So if you see 1 baby, there will be 3 others nearby.

Nice to see that the Orb Weaver's are back to full strength, lots of them out on the trails so be careful of the webs when you walk.

I took advantage of the cooler weather to take a walk today at Armand Bayou Nature Center.  Met this little fellow on the trail, I love his pink nose.

2015 Fall Migration is underway

This weekend has been brilliant, the weather outstanding!  This weekend has been one full of birding for me, I joined the monthly HAS birdcount, 25 people showed up... great turnout, and well worth it, we recorded 71 species on 3 sites, UHCL, Bay Area Park and ABNC.  If you are interested in joining the birdcount it is held 2nd Saturday every month, meeting in the front parking lot at 7 am.

This is a juvenile Mississippi Kite, spotted on the Karankawa Trail on Saturday.  Lots of Flycatchers around especially Great Crested Flycatchers plus other migrants.
