December 13th: Balmorhea, TX.

Balmorhea State Park in Balmorhea, TX., was a disappointment for any birder. We saw one coot in the small restored section of the park among some reeds and a tiny little bird we couldn't identify at the time. At the lake, we saw a Great Blue Heron and a Belted Kingfisher. Coming back through Balmorhea on SH 17 from Fort Davis on the 22nd, my uncle spotted a Ringed Kingfisher by the road.

The Buffalo Trails Boy Scout Ranch Road (FM 1832 according to Google) was more promising. There's a juvenile Golden Eagle that staked out a territory at SH17 and FM 1832. We also saw various small birds, a bevy of Scaled Quail, two Prairie Falcons, Western Meadowlarks, and mule deer.

On FM1832, one can see and hear birds. We stopped and Uncle John recorded the birds singing.
