Thursday, February 14, 2013—Happy Valentines Day

130214_E-10It’s Thursday, our “birding trip day”.  The Birding Club drove the short distance to Edinburg Scenic Wetlands and World Birding Center.  This city park has lots of trails for birding and observing butterflies, and other great areas for walking, jogging, and cycling.  We ended the day with 56 species, including several wading birds, a Buff-bellied Hummingbird (shown below), a couple of woodpeckers, and many others, the best being the Warbling Vireo and Yellow-bellied Sapsucker (shown on the right).


Kay continued her Swedish Weaving class in the afternoon.

We attended the Valentine’s Day dance at the clubhouse tonight, sharing a table with Chuck, Sue, Wayne, Bessie, and another Canadian couple who we do not know.  Ron O’Neil provided the music, and he is literally a one man band.  Most of his repertoire is ‘50s and ‘60s music with a bit of Texas 2-step, waltzes, and polkas thrown in. We heard him last year, and he seems to be slipping a bit, maybe because of his poor eyesight.  We still enjoyed the night.
