Big Year update and hiking at a state park

Had a good morning at Stephen Austin State Park. Lots of hiking and beautiful weather. I'll try to get some pix up soon. We also confirmed a pileated woodpecker for this year's Big Year count, and another bird we're still trying to identify conclusively. Our biggest problem was that the park was very popular, and lots of scout troops were there as well as families, most of whom were quite noisy and active on the hiking trails. If not for that, we might've ID'd a few more species we could hear, but couldn't get a visual ID before the next group of hikers chattered by.
