I was visiting one of the Houston Audubon’s prime locations, Laffitte’s Cove in Galveston, Texas, for viewing neotropical migrants. At one of the water drips, an old “Bird Hunter” came slithering into the water hole and disappeared beneath waiting for his next meal to come and drink or bathe. One soon arrived and lighted on a nearby branch. One woman said the snake looked like a cotton mouth and another said she thought it was a water moccasin. I guess neither knew it was one and the same. Me and my soft heart left not knowing if the “Bird Hunter” was ever successful.
