Port Aransas is for the birds

Caracara seen on Port Aransas beachThe Port Aransas Chamber of Commerce has announced that the City of Port Aransas has been named the 2011 ‘America’s Birdiest City’ in the Small Coastal City division for the second year in a row. This must be true because this morning I saw four — count ’em, four — caracaras on the beach. Normally praire birds (the national bird of Mexico), these handsome birds must have heard how hospitable we are and decided to come for a beach vacation.

    I have noticed a lot of different bird activity this summer in the Northeast. Got a glimpse of a bald eagle soaring over the Kingston-Rhinecliff Bridge in the Hudson Valley. BEAUTIFUL!
