We were awakened at 1am Saturday morning by heavy rain and thunder. You can see on the left, it was 38 degrees and we were in the middle of huge storms. Very unusual for this time of year. Then on the right, that's the radar image at 6am...still heavy rains moving through...sigh, it was cold and wet most of the day. The good news is that Sunday is supposed to be clear and dry, but still pretty cool. We'll head out to the farm to check things out to see if all is OK out there, since we didn't make it out there the last couple of weekends because of rain. Hopefully it will be nice and we can check things out for the first time this year.
More Sunday afternoon. Until then, enjoy this photo I snapped a few weekends back of this beautiful
hawk Crested Caracara flying into the trees.
UPDATE: TexWisGirl (who knows her birds!) said this looked like a Crested Caracara and I looked at pictures and it is what I saw. They are also called Mexican Eagles. Very cool, will have to keep an eye out for these beautiful birds and get some better pictures.
