As I was getting close a small raptor soared out of the neighborhood by the road, Unmistakable with its pearly white head and long black forked tail, Swallow-tailed Kite was Year Bird 366! 366 is a major milestone as it is the total I had for last year (2014). Its not my best year ever but it was one of my best so now I feel like I'm getting there.

Next weekend (April 25, 2015) should be a good one, I'm doing the Upper Texas Coast section of the Great Texas Birding Classic with my team. I've been "saving" a lot of birds for this day because I'm confident we'll get them. We're hoping for a 200 plus bird day. That single 24 hour day works out to about 3 days of my usual birding. I think I should be knocking on the door of 400 at the end of the day. Stay tuned,
