Luke List in 1st Place Going Into Today’s Final Round at the Honda Classic

Here’s hoping Luke List holds on to the lead and gets the win after today’s round at the Honda Classic.  His tee time is 1:45 and he is paired with Justin Thomas. Tiger Woods is seven shots back and has a 12:45 tee time.  The following article is from a 1996 Bent Tree newsletter.  It’s been posted here before, but it’s worth repeating.

Bent Tree has enjoyed beautiful weather the last few days… sunshine, warm temps, a gentle breeze from time to time…it makes it hard to remember it’s February.

Click here for a post from 2013.  Five years later (where has the time gone?), the Bent Tree Bluebird Benefactors are still going strong.  Bent Tree’s Bluebird Trail is well-maintained and flourishing thanks to the couple.  The photo above shows 13 houses they recently refurbished; the houses will soon go back to their locations on the golf course and at the dam.  Six other houses were spruced up at their sites on the front nine.  It’s the time of year when bluebirds begin choosing their nesting sites…Bent Tree’s bluebirds have some special people making sure their homes are as clean and safe as possible.

Bear Watch

Black bear in Bent Tree

A Bent Tree homeowner was kind enough to send me some black bear photographs he took in Bent Tree this week using a powerful telephoto lens. He has taken some of the most amazing bear photos in Bent Tree over the last several years (click here for a previous post), and is very knowledgeable about black bear behaviors and biology.  There has been an interesting thread recently, on the Bent Tree NextDoor page, about a bear that was outside her den on Tamarack Drive for several days in a row.  The photographer’s opinion is that the bear was nearing delivery time for her next batch of cubs, and that would explain her lack of movement.
