Okay, I am learning. It seems that I made a mistake in my previous post. I went by that nest today. The light was better, and better still, the mother bird was easier to identify along with her young ones. It is not an Ash-throated Flycatcher as I said previously. It obviously is a Western Kingbird with her chicks. I got lucky again and got what I think, is a great photo of her and her hungry fledglings. So enjoy this photo below and click on the image for an enlargement.
In other news, Ann, Jodie Wolslager, and I made a trip to Llano State Park down at Junction a few days ago. An enjoyable trip despite rainy on the way down, then hot and humid after we got there. The bird blinds there, four of them, were really sweat-boxes because of the high humidity. However, we saw many birds that we don’t usually see around San Angelo. A Yellow-breasted Chat, Yellow-throated Vireo, both lifers for me, and a Black-throated Sparrow. Those birds are around here but not in the large numbers as they are down there. I want to make a return trip soon.
