Damien Carey, who lead the bird tour at the Prairie Celebration, has agreed to lead another bird tour of Deer Park Prairie on Saturday, May 24, 2014 at 8:00 a.m. RSVP is required to HNPAT@TexasPrairie.org. We will email parking instructions, depending on the number of cars coming.
The photo of the bald eagle was sent by Mary Anne Weber of Houston Audubon, who found it in her photos of Deer Park Prairie after she got home from the Prairie Celebration on April 5. After I forwarded it to Damien, he wrote back, “There are more bald eagle nests in and around Greater Houston than most folks can imagine. Our local population is proving metropolitan. The bird was likely out foraging for its eaglettes.”
