A rainy day

It's a rainy day a good day to catch up on e-mails.
Last night we went to our first Audubon meeting. The program was given by a couple who had taken a birding trip to CO to see the chickens, prairie chickens last April, it was very good program.
There was a silent auction on various items to raise some money for plants for our favorite birding park, Ramsey so I bought an old book a big book on the Worlds Raptors it was a bargain for $7.
Hopefully this weather clears up by tomorrow so we can go on the boat tour of the Rio Grande river with the Audubon group.
Earlier this morning I listened to our family of Kiskadees, a joyful noise.
I heard a bird sing in this dark of December
a magical thing
and sweet to remember
'We are nearer to Spring than we were in September'
I heard a bird sing
in the dark of December.

I am enjoying catching up with you this afternoon. I looked at your Flicker photos they are beautiful! I am so wanting to go south...all the butterflies I miss in the winter here in Missouri seem to be getting along just fine in Texas!
Enjoy each minute.
