Happy Easter from Marathon Texas

The owner has some quail blocks out on the property and I’ve been trying to catch some quail feeding there. They are very skittish, so you have to be still to get some pics.

Sunset Drive to Post Park

We decided to take a drive to Post park before dark tonight. Nice park with a creek flowing through it, so lots of wildlife.

We saw about 30-40 of these on the way back. Finally caught up with this one on the side of the road. No shortage of jackrabbit’s.
