I won't be blogging for a few days because I'm going to be away until Friday. My daughter has arrived from Barcelona and we're spending the week in a beach house at Surfside, just along the coast from Galveston.
We all went to Surfside once before, in September 2008. That time we got just one day there before having to evacuate because of Hurricane Ike. So we're glad that there currently no hurricanes in our forecast.
While we're at the beach, I'm hoping to see lots of migrating shorebirds. I also hope that I'll be able to do some birding at nearby sites, including Brazoria NWR, Quintana and Bolivar. If everything turns out as planned, I should have some interesting photos to post when I return.
See you soon!
