Yellow Warbler and Turtle

I spent the morning birding most of the new hike-and-bike trail and before I knew it the morning became the afternoon. There were migrating birds out there but it was hard work finding them. I finally found a few birds that I normally see a few weeks earlier, including a female Indigo Bunting, a Wilson's Warbler, and 3 Yellow Warblers. I got this picture of one of the Yellow Warblers in a pecan tree on the T&C playing fields.

Near where the hike-and-bike trail leaves the playing fields to the south, I came across this hatchling Red-eared Slider. I couldn't believe how small it was. Oh, and the blue and white thing is my high-tech wireless bird count recording device. It almost never crashes!

Whoa! That turtle is so tiny. How cool.

It's so difficult to find reliable high tech wireless recording devices these days!
