I debated wheter or not to post this page from my journal. It is all writing. We had such a fun time at Bensten State Park. It is a marvelous park that used to be wide open for all that wanted to go to and from. Now it is still open but in a more "managed" way. You have to park outside the park, then either walk or take a tram into the area. There aren't as many birds reported here since they have done this. People used to park their trailers there all winter and put feeders out etc. You had lots of chances to find rarities. I didn't mind the park being like this but it is limiting if you wanted to see the entire park. I imagine that the wildlife loves it this way. The most fun was to see the Great Kiskadees displaying their golden crowns. Not only were they doing that the were becoming territorial. Fighting for certain perches and positions at feeders. I was wanting to draw and paint this scene but I couldn't quite get the fight scene to land on the paper. Instead I settled for one showing its crown.
