Tuesday began with overcast skies again. Temperatures were quite nice, though. With the cloudy skies I decided to get out of the house and visit the blind at San Angelo State Park. I love the lighting in these conditions; no bright sunlight or harsh shadows. Ann had to do some household chores, so I could concentrate more on my bird photography, and less on just bird watching.
When I first got there, I first saw a Spotted Towhee, (Pipilo maculatus), darting in and out of some nearby brush. Occasionally, he would flit up into a small tree.
Then there were the two Pyrrhuloxia, (Cardinalis sinuatus), a male and a female. Two very beautiful birds. One, the male, was in a bird feeder.
The female was peeking around from a small log.
I hope you enjoyed the photos. Click on any image to see a beautiful enlargement. More to come soon.
