Since I'll turn 77 this month, and since today is 7-7-17, and since I think 7s are my lucky number, I'm waiting for something exciting to happen today. Nothing yet. 😃 My myxoid cyst came back after being gone for a week, and I borrowed a Neti pot to treat my sinus infection. But I'm in pretty good shape for the shape I'm in.
The Alpine habitat is 13 yrs old and starting to be a real habitat. I think this is the first year Vermilion Flycatchers might be nesting successfully, first year of consistently hearing a Bell's Vireo, and heard my first Yellow-billed Cuckoo here yesterday. (I heard them in Marathon and Lajitas too, so must be a good year for them.) The lotuses are putting on a pretty good show this year too.
I don't expect to ever have nesting Yellow-breasted Chat's (like CMO does) because my husband mows. But it's better than no town habitat at all.
