Some recent random photos.


I’ve been getting out more, since the weather has been so nice lately.  Wow, is spring around the corner?  I think for this post I will just keep my mouth shut and let my photos do the talking.  These are just a few from the past week.  Enjoy and click on any of them to see an enlargement.

  1. Looks like your list is building fast. Love your hummer. Taking the kids to High Island to see some winterers. Hope to add a couple of lifers to my own list! Still peddling hard to catch up to you. Need to modify my list which has grown…

    • My list will be slowing now until the spring birds start to arrive. I hope to get to 200 at least. I also really hope that you do catch me. I love it that you are really getting into this stuff. Good luck…….

    • Thanks, Judy. But it will get harder to add to the Big Year list. Right now I am just adding to the regulars. It will now slow a bit until the spring birds arrive. Glad I have your interest. 🙂

  2. Great group of beautiful birds!The Anna’s hummer is so colorful and the Loggerhead Shrike is very distinguished looking. I always enjoy Osprey and the Great Egret and GBH (your fav!) are posing pretty. Thanks for sharing! Enjoy the weekend. hugs
