This week, with some time on hand, I took a short drive to Georgetown’s San Gabriel Park, where the San Gabriel River flows. I’ve been here quite a few times since returning to Texas in 2009. You know, of course, my go-to place for birds is the rookery at Taylor’s Murphy Park, but this place in Georgetown is mighty fine, too. I got there about 90 minutes ahead of sunset, wandered up and down the adjacent trail, then finally settled in, near sunset and beyond, on a little bridge where I like to watch the action …. or the inaction. Then I just stayed. And observed. Until the light moved on.
