Some sharp birders (Cameron Carver and Steve Gross) at the oasis today recognized a bird they found here as being a Louisiana Waterthrush and not a Northern, like I would have mistakenly called it had they not been here.
It has the buffy sides...
...and plain white throat. (Compare to Northern posted May 5, 2010)
Besides being a new species at the oasis, it's a lifer for me. Thanks, guys!
Cameron's mother was delighted to see this millipede in a tree.
I have lived in the Christmas Mountains since 1976, and started my oasis in 1996. You can contact me at email@example.com for visiting instructions. No minors. Pet rules are the same as for Big Bend National Park.
