The birder I did the count with was a good birder so that helped a lot. We started at the Fort Davis Historic Site. Very few birds.
I lugged my heavy camera during the whole time. Then when my teammate found a cluster of birds that included a Black-chinned Sparrow, I eventually caught up with him, but the sparrow didn't show again. That's one species I would have liked a better photo of. But we had a fun time anyway.
We met up with Kelly for lunch. I ate too much. When I got back to Alpine I crashed for a 3-hour nap.
Tomorrow I need to wash the car and pack for Austin. I really look forward to oding there with Desha Melton and Eric Isley.
