Brazos Bend SP

Went with husband, Scott, for a nature hike around Big Creek Loop at the north end of the park. Also counted numbers of bird species with eBird app, checklist: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S59427998. Logged these species, some of which I photographed with the long lens. Great day to be out!
