Now arriving in the central Texas area are hummingbirds, Barn Swallows and Purple Martins. Spring is definitely here.
We hung up our hummingbird feeder up on Wednesday and by Friday a hummingbird was feeding from it. On Sunday, there were three hummingbirds competing for the best feeding position.
Soon the Mexican Fruit Bats will return. The bats’ summer home is under the Ann W. Richards Congress Avenue Bridge in Austin. We haven’t had much rain, so the mosquitos will not be as plentiful. In low-rain weather patterns, it will be common for us to see them out here in the far reaches of the county, as they have to travel farther out to find enough food.
