    Well worth getting up early to hike to Forest Ridge - we heard and spotted several endangered birds thanks to Jim identifying them and playing tapes to lure them close for us to see.

The youpon tea and bananas for refreshments alon g the way certainly hit the spot. Thanks for that Jim. Great talking to the other hikers too.

    It was awesome! We got to learn so much about the endangered Gokden Cheeked Warbler. Did you know it migrates every from Central America ? And we got to see it protect its territory and heard the A song and B song. Thank you Jim for the educational trip and Ponderosa tea. Thank you Louis for organising this .

    I apologize for backing out so late, but have a raccoon caught in a trap that I have to go release this morning. He/She's been after my chickens! Have a great hike - it's a beautiful morning out there.

    Usually, when someone on the list backs out, the system automatically notifies the next person in line that a spot is open.

    How and when do the folks in waiting list come to
    know if a slot had become available?

    I might go to the Brazos Valley Trade Show (chickens) but should have time to do both. How necessary is the head count? I would hate to say yes and then not show and keep someone else from going??

      If you don't think you'll make it, please open your spot for another hiker. We have folks on the waitlist who would like to attend.
