Finding Comfort in Texas

 Early morning on Cypress Creek in Comfort, Texas, sitting with a cup or coffee and equipped with my camera and binoculars, that’s where I recently found myself. While the rest of the state was burning up, even at that early hour, we were comfortable, pun intended. The family vacation was short and did not involve a lot of travel this year. We found ourselves revisiting one of our favorite spots, Comfort.
 One of the grand draws to this small town is the ease and tranquility one can find on the banks of Cypress Creek. Deer come to feed around 8:00 AM attracted by corn. We counted 16 one morning and 20 the next.
 There are birds to see and listen for as well. Red Bellied Woodpeckers, Carolina Chickadees, Cardinals, and wrens all come to call. On one of our walks down to the ball fields we found Barn Swallows and heard the call of a Red Shouldered Hawk. Yet, the best birds were a flock of Lesser Goldfinches. I tried but was unsuccessful at getting a decent picture of the goldfinches
