Birdie and I spent a relaxing week at Lake Corpus Christie State Park. These are our sites.
It was good to finally meet and get-together with forum friends that are also here. This is Mary Lynn and her colorful feathered companions.
Jasper and Hank are beautiful Green-winged Macaws.
This is Bob and Skunk. You'll have to guess which is which. Not sure who's the boss.But they do
The lake itself is low, so we never did get the kayak in.
Well it doesn't say "No Hunting"....
"What? This is not a fish!"
There were lots of places to walk. These cabins have a nice view of the lake.The pavilion and tower was built by the CCC.
View from the tower.
Bet they had some fun times in here at one time.
We walked the Birding TrailBut other than this mockingbird, not much birdlife.
Birdie put out some food to attract them.
It did a great job attracting the ants! They carried it off.
We also walked the birding trail down by the dam.Where we found a nice Geocache, but not many birds here either.
Having more luck Geocaching than birding, we did a tour of the area finding more Geocaches. This old cemetery is named for the founder of the town of Mathis.
Many of the grave markers are hand-carved.
Interesting sign we came across.
Our tour took us to the Veterans Park
Named for one of the Veterans.
Here are a few of the birds we did see: Loggerhead Shrike
I almost stepped on this Texas Banded Water snake while walking Bandit. Was glad to learn its identity and that it is not poisonous.
We may not have kayaked, but Simba sure enjoyed the water.
A friend on Facebook asked me how many times I had to throw him to get him to "skip" across water like that. Haha
And we enjoyed a few pretty sunsets too.
We're now heading south to the Rio Grande Valley to do some birding, and maybe some kayaking. We'll meet up with Bob and Mary Lynn again in March at the TX Get-together.
