On Saturday, June 11, Dave Morgan led a group of TAPC club members on a field trip to the Fort Worth Nature Center early in the morning to visit some areas where Dave finds birds and other wildlife. During the morning, Dave called in a painted bunting, a yellow warbler close for photos and we also saw butterfiles, dragonflies, prairie dogs, a snake and some deer. We saw the painted bunting near the entrance to the center and we saw the yellow warbler near the boardwalk section of the center. Dave used a technique with his cell phone and a separate speaker to call in the birds so those of us without the big lenses had a chance to still take photos of the birds. For those of you that have not been to the Nature Center, it is a beautiful oasis just west of Fort Worth with nice hiking trails, a lake and the river that runs through the center.
We appreciate Dave taking time out of his schedule to show us around the center and to bring the birds in close.

Here are a few photos I took during the morning excursion.
