Well slap me in the face and kick me out of my doldrum! The last three days I’ve been moving like an old fart waiting for his renewed AARP card. Sloooowwwww! Yes, I did get Black-capped Vireo and Golden-cheeked Warbler, but I certainly haven’t been pushing the envelope. And last night I said today would be a travel day. The epiphany came 20 miles west of Del Rio when I realized that I’d arrive a Marathon by 2:30 PM.
Plenty of time to drive into Big Bend NP and check out Rio Grande Village. Never mind that it’s 92 miles away from Marathon and the temperature was 106 degrees F when I arrived! I did locate the Common Black Hawk and a Poorwill after dark. However, now it’s 11:30 PM I’m tired and the youthful enthusiasm so prevelant this afternoon is long gone. I need to take some geritol and go to bed.
