Q.  What are your 3 favorite birds? and is/are there any particular reason(s) they're your favorites??
Q.  Tell us about your BEST birding experience.... so far.
A.
Sibley's.
Peregrine Falcon -- It is soooo kewl to watch them work on the ducks and shorebirds.  Getting to watch them take one is just awesome.
Lazuli Bunting -- We really enjoy seeing them in the Refuge as well as the Indigo and Painted Buntings.
Northern Oriole -- We have the Bullock's and Baltimore that feed in our backyard and we enjoy watching them play king-of-the-feeder.
Hackberry Flat.
Mary is a science teacher and the habit just sort of developed.  I was originally just a "spotter."
Q.  What was your WORST??
A.
We called 2 friends to see what we "thought" was a Barrow's Goldeneye only to have it become a Common Goldeneye after the call.  Duh....
Q.  What are you most likely to say when a bird flies before you can ID it??
We were driving a dirt road between Eagle Pass and Laredo, Texas, just to drive the 40 miles of dirt, and we happened upon an Aztec Thrush sitting on a low phone pole.  He just sat there and then flew after we had gotten a great look.
Q.  What was the last book you read?
