One of the fine old pecan trees at Sam Nail has produced a nice crop of pecans.

Imre - are you out there again ?  I wish I was a little closer than 12 hours away.
I guess there will be plenty of competition for those pecans when they ripen and fall.  Any bird activity at Sam Nail  this time of year ?

Alan: sadly, I am no longer in the park. Surprise migrant at Sam Nail was a Virginia's warbler. Hardly unexpected, but not common in August either. Bird song was greatly diminished however Bell's vireo was still vocal.  The bobcat was another surprise visitor.
