Starting a new week a day late, since Labor Day was a day for just doing nothing. Tried watching the Texas Rangers baseball game, but they didn’t do well, so I took a nap. That’s what us senior type people do on holidays. 🙂
I haven’t come up with anything new in my photographs in the last few days. I tried to take some images of the bird blind for a future blog post. I wasn’t too satisfied with my results so I will go back at another time. Does any one know of a good photographer. 🙂
But Tom Camfield who lives over near the O. C. Fisher Dam and Concho River, had a nice visitor for about three days. A Rufous Hummingbird. When he sent me the photos, I had to ask him to ID them for me. I’m afraid I need to get a little more educated about hummingbirds. With his permission, I am publishing them here. Click on any photo to see a nice enlargement. Enjoy.
In other news, Ann and I looked for the Roseate Spoonbills this morning, but they were nowhere to be found. Maybe they decided to leave before the coming storm gets here. We did still see a couple of Great Blue Herons. Also, the lake level must have dropped another couple of inches, because we saw another islet being “born”.
So Happy Birding. Migration is coming soon!
