.The Chisos Rosewood had been blooming profusely for over a week now and no butterflies. Someone told me it would attract butterflies. And someone told me to watch the soapberry blooms for butterflies too, and no butterflies anywhere. Must be too hot and dry.
On the facebook birding groups people get so sick of seeing Cardinal photos posted, BUT I have not seen one at the oasis since the drought of 2011 until today, so I just had to document the event, even though the bird was not very cooperative.
