I have been shooting more than I have been thinking about something to write about. So I will just write about the pictures I have taken the past week.
First I need to mention, that it is said that there never has been a nesting pair of American Coots in this area. Well, that has changed. At a pond at San Angelo State Park there are a pair of adults and at least five young ones. Here is a photo that I captured of one of the babies.
On another day at the bird blind in the park I captured this amazingly beautiful European Starling. I don’t often compliment starlings on their looks, but you have to admit there is a certain beauty about him.
Then I got lucky with a cute pose of the Northern Cardinal.
This Golden-fronted Woodpecker always is a feast of color to look at.
After leaving the blind, we drove through the park a bit and caught this Greater Roadrunner with a grasshopper. I have a hard time resisting photographing these popular birds.
Upon leaving the park, Ann spotted this Common Nighthawk on a branch. Our first sighting of one this year. That brings our 2014 Big Year total to 167.
All photos were taken with my Canon EOS 70D and Tamron 150-600mm lens. Hope you enjoy.
