My pal Tony Dixon made the long pilgrimage north and connected with the PINE GROSBEAK this morning. Maybe I'll see one...one day?
Over the pond VARIED THRUSHES are still being found in the east...not far enough east for us however!!
Phil Jones had three Snow Buntings at the sewage works this morning. Good to know they're still around.
Must have had at least 30 Barn Owl sightings this week cruising the highways and byways of South Holderness...Nice.
Back to the States. As preliminary plans take place for my forthcoming return to my beloved Texas, I found this amazing photo of High Island (living up to it's name!) taken in September '08 after Hurricane Ike.
Thankfully, this fantastic migrant oasis survived, unlike many old Oaks in Galveston, unfortunately killed by the salt water.
This was the scene along the Bolivar peninsular...
More here...if you're interested.
It will be fascinating to see what it looks like 5 years later?
