Billy Jones and I had fun taking pictures at Sam Houston State Park today.


Are you guilty of listening for a 'double-knock' or looking for a large triangle of white on the lower back of a large Woodpecker in hopes that it might be the legendary Ivory-billed Woodpecker which is probably extinct? Wouldn't it be nice if some were still hanging around?

Regardless, it was exciting to see this Pileated Woodpecker land in a tree nearby.

Hugging the tree

A small, curious and restless Brown-headed Nuthatch was out and about.

Pine Warblers are always a treat to see.

My wife tells me our grandchildren need to grow feathers in order for me to take their pictures! :)

Our granddaughter is in the eighth grade, plays on a tournament soccer team and helps coach younger girls just starting soccer. She is outgoing, involved in organizations at school, President of the Rebel Riot, maintains a banner roll average and was voted runner-up for Miss W.W. Lewis Middle School. She is a super grand daughter and we are proud of her.

She is holding a trophy she won Tuesday afternoon. She placed first among all the Middle Schools in Calcasieu Parish's Forensic Tournament with her oratory speech on placing prayer back in school. She is pictured on the left along with her friend who placed second is on the right.
