Bell’s Vireo (Vireo bellii)


We got a little serious birding in this morning at San Angelo State Park.  Saw twenty-two species.  Highlights were the Bell’s Vireo (Vireo bellii) .  I got a few good images of it, even though it kept itself in the branches of a tree.  There were several hundred American White Pelicans on O. C. Fisher Lake.  We saw six Loggerhead Shrikes out there, plus the Meadowlarks are arriving.  We also saw a Belted Kingfisher near the Wells-Fargo bank, near Southwest Blvd and Loop 306. 

Here are a couple of images of the Bell’s Vireo.  These were photographed with my Canon 7d and Canon 100-400mm lens.  Click on either one for an enlargement.
