Taken on monthly group walk on the Nalle Bunny Run Wildlife Refuge owned by Hill Country Conservancy.

This is the first time I've observed one of the "hanging thieves" robber flies on the preserve. I've only ever seen them before in Gonzales.

My first guess would be these tracks are from Hispid Cotton Rat.

These two Great Egrets were soaring high in the sky and finally pointed themselves to the south. I believe they were fall migrants.

I was excited to watch this dragonfly I didn't recognize land and to take some photos of it. I'm pretty sure it's a Turquoise-tipped Darner, and uncommon species that doesn't occur much further north than Austin.

Taken on the monthly Birding on Broadmeade group walk on Lake Creek Trail.

We initially found this Yellow-billed Cuckoo near the base of a small willow tree in the creek bed. We watched it for a few minutes before it disappeared in the thick vegetation there. A little later a juvenile Cooper's Hawk perched nearby and flew into the creek bed towards the same general area. The cuckoo emerged and fled from the hawk in a dramatic series of maneuvers, including flying through a tall chain-link fence that the hawk had to fly around. The cuckoo disappeared into an ash tree. The hawk entered the same tree but emerged shortly empty-taloned and leaving the area.
