This is what I encountered upon my return home from High Island Texas, so I am not going
to be desperate to write a column with all this material.  The first shots of the Great Blue Heron
with his assorted catches were obtained by him in approximately fifteen minutes, so he wasn't
hungry for long.  I could only get a White-crowned Sparrow in Texas on the ground, so getting
one in a tree was a welcome change.  The Downy Woodpecker is definitely cavity nesting, and
this dead robin appears to be laden with eggs.  Such will be the circle of life's beginning this
spring.
