I’ve gotten behind on my postss. This is a busy time of the year for me. I ‘ve been trying to get some birding time in, so when Suzanne and Sid Johnson said they wanted to get together Saturday it was a welcome respite. We started at San Angelo State Park, at the bird blind, then headed for the boat ramp. I think we saw around 27 species in all at the park.
Following that we head for the park near Spring Creek Marina. Lots of Eastern Bluebirds, Orange-crowned Warblers, Eastern Phoebes, Golden-fronted Woodpeckers, Ladder-backed Woodpeckers, and several others. I forgot to mention, that we had stopped at what we call Huntington Lake, and there were waterbirds or ducks of almost every description. Wigeons, Ducks, Merganzers, just to name a few.
All total for the five hours we spent was 43 species according to Ann’s count. As for photos, I didn’t get too much as I got into the birding aspect more than usual. I don’t think that any of what we saw presented a large photograph opportunity. However, I did come away with a nice small image of a Belted-Kingfisher and a Ladder-backed Woodpecker.
