Big Bend Bird Photographs

First before I get started, Frank Jones, who is a good friend of mine and runs the Roadrunner Deli in Study Butte, commented on my yesterday’s post about the Big Bend Scenes, and explained what many of those photos were.  Click here to read that comment.  You will find it very informative.

Birding was great in the Big Bend I must say, but the birds were pretty skittish and I didn’t get near as many photos as I would have liked.  Well, actually, I did get a lot of images, around 300 or so, but not enough of the ones that I like to publish on this blog.  Many of them were just duplicates or quick snap-shots that I got mainly for identification purposes.  But here are a few of my more presentable photos.

Hermit Thrush

Eastern Phoebe

Vermilion Flycatcher

Red-tailed Hawk

Red-tailed Hawk

Common Raven

Cactus Wren

Loggerhead Shrike

Red-naped Sapsucker

Maybe more to come, as I go through some more images.  Click on any of these to see an enlargement.

  1. Beautiful, Bob! My favorite is the Vermillion Flycatcher, but then the flycatcher is one of my favorite birds period. 🙂

  2. Bob , we have something here that looks much like the Red naped Sapsucker and we had been calling it a woodpecker. We live near Ft. Worth. Is there a woodpecker that is similar. Love looking at the pictures. CAROLYN
