I’m back in Texas to give my talk on my Alaska big year tonight in Fort Worth. I arrived late yesterday after a full day of flying and airports. This morning I went to one of my favorite Metroplex birding areas, Village Creek Drying Beds and the adjacent River Legacy Park. Most of the common birds here are birds not seen ever or very much in Alaska. The weather of course was mild for here (maybe 65) but really warm compared to Alaska’s 25 degrees when we left yesterday.
