More Blue Herons Plus


It is a short post this time, due to time constraints.  We got out for a while yesterday morning and found that some of the shore birds are returning.  Although we weren’t close enough to get acceptable images, we saw various sandpipers, ibises, and some waders.

I will include a couple Great Blue Heron photos here that we spotted in Middle Concho Park.

Farther on we did come across a bunch of Least Sandpipers.  I am not great at IDing sandpiper type birds, but I believe I am right on this one.

  1. Thanks for sharing the photos. The GBH are such striking birds and the Sandpiper paused long enough for you to take his picture – that was nice of him! Hope you continue to see more birds and enjoy the time out looking. That is half the fun!

  2. I just love the herons, with such a shortage of running water here this year i have only seen a very few.. and none in our trees.. hope they are back next year.. c
