Davis Mountain Birds and McDonald Observatory

March 3 – 5, 2012

Drove to Davis Mountain State Park TX today. Texas back roads are sure scenic, but I can’t help but wonder where these people grocery shop. I’m seeing nothing but cows and sheep for 40+ miles. While at Davis Mountain we visited the McDonald observatory http://www.as.utexas.edu/mcdonald/.
The observatory has ongoing programs for visitors and a nice gift shop. I was excited to see my first Montezuma Quail and Black-crested Titmouse at the campground.
