Hurricanes and trains

The devastation currently being wrought on the people of south Texas is heartbreaking. Hurricane Harvey is said to be the biggest disaster ever to hit the area, dropping over 11 trillion gallons of water on the region before it’s done. Our thoughts and prayers go out to those affected.

The night shift

A little brown bat (Myotislucifungus) has taken up residence on my front porch. It can be seen sleeping in the daytime, if you look for it. It hangs upside down, as bats do, up near the ceiling. It’s sheltered behind a block of wood that serves as a phoebe defense.

The whitening around Sam’s neck visible in this photo, and the yellowing of the talons, visible in the color version of this photo, suggest that Sam may already be two years old. If so, the fact that the adults are still feeding him is a puzzle.

The Sam saga continues

[Patti Serio sent us some observation notes to update the story “The Saga of Sam the Eagle at Hawk’s Cay House” in our August 3 issue.
