Goldfinch at Lake Artemesia.

I went to Buddy Attick yesterday, but didn’t see much beyond a couple of turtles.

It was cloudy this morning, and I was skeptical, but I set out early for Lake Artemesia anyway. After an hour or so, the skies began to clear and a few birds began to appear, but it wasn’t any bonanza.

I spent more time with the Purple Martins, and tried to get a shy Oriole out of the bushes, but to no avail. Better days will come.
