Another great week in Mission, Texas – good weather – sun and heat. It was a busy week. We watched a lot of Olympics – super athletes representing Canada – all countries – fantastic. Watched bball Saturday night as Duke beat Syracuse YEAH !!! Went on a lot of birding walks. It was nice having Mark around – good company for birding. We went to Edinburg Wetlands, Anzalduas Park and Laguna Acosta Refuge. The Refuge changed from last year – no driving on their long road but we were on time for the park bus – 2 and 1/2 hour tour. Excellent. Then we went on a walk through deer habitat – it was HOT over 30C. We saw lots of signs of deer but no animals themselves. We did see some great hawks. Week-end spent relaxing, watching some sports and catching up on housework.
Now for some pics.
