Taken on Lake Creek Trail in Williamson County.

I approached a patch of poverty weed hearing what I thought were some kind of trilling insects. A few minutes later I saw an Eastern Phoebe foraging, and a little later saw it feeing a Brown-headed Cowbird fledgling. There were at least two cowbird fledglings and what I thought were the insect sounds were actually their begging calls.

Taken during the monthly group walk on Hill Country Conservancy's Nalle Bunny Run wildlife preserve.

After hearing it singing and getting one distant look at this bird before the group arrived, I was happy this Painted Bunting was still singing when we started the group walk. I was even happier when the bird came into view for us. It was one of the first birds we saw.

Despite literally having red spots, I think this is a young Gulf Coast Toad rather than a Red-spotted Toad. I'm basing this on the long paratoid gland behind the left eye. It was clinging to the inside of the spring box just above the water.

In my experience, Eastern Bluebird is not often seen on the preserve. There was a juvenile bird near this female. Maybe they nested nearby. Back in January I photographed a male and female on a nest box on the preserve.

The bright orange beetle caught my eye, and it wasn't until I looked at the photo on my computer that I realized there were two more insects on this Mexican Hat flower.
