I just came across an old photo that I took at Davis Mountains State Park. Isn’t this one of the uglisest, cutest bird you ever saw?? 🙂 It is an Acorn Woodpecker, (Melenerpes formicivorus). It is pretty common in west Texas west of the Pecos. Click on the image to see an enlargement.
While I am at it I guess I will include some other Big Bend photos that I don’t think you have seen. Well, maybe you have. I have so many danged photos and sometimes I don’t remember if I have ever posted them. The first is one more of the Santa Elena Canyon. You can see a family preparing to take a short float trip upstream. When this photo was taken the Rio Grande was pretty calm and not running fast.
This next picture is a mountainous desert scene from somewhere in the desolate part of Big Bend National Park. The image was captured about a year ago on one of my trips there. I never tire of visiting that vast isolated place.
Well, that’s it for this time. Swing back around again in a few days and I’ll probably have some more to show you. 🙂
Happy birding and photographing and hiking, and etc. 🙂
