Nest hole. Watched her lay the clutch and then cover them up. If I had not seen it, would never have been able to tell the ground was disturbed!

On a work trip to San Angelo- while I was out in the field at the TPWD office near the lake, I observed this climbing up the wall of the office building. I got two pictures in, and then he took off.
