The State Fair of Texas 2019

After three years, we’ve visited the State Fair of Texas again. The weather was beautiful: sunny and perfect temperatures. Unfortunately, when it is as nice as it was yesterday, lots of people visit the fair. It was very crowded. So, we couldn’t go to all the places we’ve wanted to see. But we went late afternoon, and stayed until it was dark. The State Fair will be open until this Sunday, October 20th. Here are some images I’ve captured at last night’s visit at the Fair Park in Dallas.

Blue Jays Love Peanuts (2)

This morning the blue jays went bonkers for the peanuts, I laid out for them. There was a lot of commotion going on in our trees all day. One of the jays always has to be the announcer: “HEY EVERYBODY! THERE ARE PEANUTS, AGAIN!!! WE FOUND MORE FOOD! … BUT DON’T TELL ANYBODY!!!!” 😀 Silly birds!

A Frontyard Visitor At Dusk

After sundown, we’ve got a not-every-day visit from a Yellow-crowned Night Heron. First it landed on the neighbor’s roof across the street; rested for a little bit; walked down to the gutter; to end up in the neighbor’s frontyard, before it crossed the street to end up strutting on our front lawn. Katelynn and Sara observed the bird for a little bit. When the heron had enough, it flew into another neighbor’s tree. By that time, it was too dark to make out the bird between the leaves. ~ Good night, little Yellow-crowned Night Heron! It was nice to meet you and come for a visit in our yard.
