. While our yards have been quiet since good weather returned last weekend, there have been plenty of birds around in our area. I only wish I'd had more time for birding! A short visit to Kleb Wood and a drive along Longenbaugh Road added 8 species to my year list. A couple of brief walks around the CyFair campus each turned up 17-18 species, including year bird #99: a dozen Ring-necked Ducks. Here are a few of the photos from my week.
