Bit of this and that

Sunday afternoon we attended a BBQ Birthday Party, the birthday celebrantes have been putting this bash on for 12 years. There were about 100 people there, they furnished the BBQ and everyone brought a side dish. There were 3 bands, each played for about an hour, one of the birthday persons was a band member the singer here in this pic. We were entertained with country and Mexican music. It was a fun afternoon! Monday, Ken volunteered to do some work in the Hugh Ramsey Nature Park, he did some bush removal. I cleaned the RV.
Today, Ken checked and made some calls to get stuff to fix his computer, so he'll be watching the mail now. We did stop at a couple of new places today, one was the Iwo Jima Memorial, this is the original working model from which the bronze was cast from, it is in Washington, DC. We also visited the museum and saw a 30min film on the Battle of Iwo Jima.
We visited Harlingen Lake which is on the birding list, I took this photo of a Yellow throat warbler. We meet another birding couple who told us about the parakeets in Harlingen and a spot where they are supposed to be, but not today. They are staying on S. P. I. and told us where we could see the Purple Sandpipers over there.

It is to be sunny all week and in the mid 70's so it should be a great week to bird. We may even get up early tomorrow to join a birding group at Hugh Ramsey Park.
