LSU Rural Life Museum and surrounding grounds have been closed for a couple of months due to the Wuhan Virus. Since we are in Phase one of reopening, I checked and saw that it has reopened with some restrictions. One of those restrictions is no access to restrooms. I didn't think it would be an issue since it's not too far from home.

So I am parked in front of what looks like a maple tree with red and green leaves, hoping a bird would land there. Using my car as a blind, I waited. And waited. Finally, what I thought was a Mockingbird landed on a limb. However, when zoomed in, it turned out to be a Loggerhead Shrike! Hallelujah! I got brave and exited my car, walking as stealthily as possible. Got off one decent shot and off he flew.

I went back to my car to find a dead battery. The husband to the rescue! I was so thankful that there was a porta-potty at the entrance. Whew, close call. I spent the rest of the day dealing with the repair shop and watering my thirsty plants when I got home. Where is all the rain The Weather Channel app has been predicting since last week? I get better information looking out the window.
