We couldn't find the MiFi so my postings may not be quite as regular as in the past. We left Tellahassee early and headed west with John driving. Out of Florida, through Alabama, and into Mississippi. We stopped at the welcome center to eat the lunch John had fixed and what should be singing but a Swainson's Warbler, a bird John needed. On across Louisiana where I picked up a Bank Swallow winging across the road, and into Texas with enough time to do a little birding on the Bolivar Peninsula. Looking through shorebirds and terns we added Black Tern (tons of them) (web photo) and a few Common Terns. We took the ferry to Galveston where we were reunited with Dick Peake. We're staying with Dick and Martha tonight and tomorrow we'll look for some rice fields. The three new birds brought the total to 517.
