Park Mid-Section Burkett to Bell's Point

Found this egg on the trail - I'm not enough of an expert to know if the egg was discarded after the bird hatched or if the remnants of the yolk means he didn't make it.

Temps in the upper 80's, partly cloudy, steady southerly wind.

Fitness hike with a friend.  The trails were pretty good although the grasses are still somewhat high.  Found a small bird's egg on the trail (photo attached) later identified as a Titmouse egg.

Some of the park's longhorns were clustered around the cattle tank on top of Armadillo Ridge and a few of the young bulls were curious about us but left us alone.


Water, shade, info kiosk and dry toilets available at Burkett Park.
