On Sunday morning, Ann and I decided to visit the bird blind at San Angelo State Park. There we met our friend, Christie McCorts-Chambers, as she had the same thoughts as ours. We sat and watched the birds to see if there was anything new to drop by. There were a couple of Black-chinned Hummingbirds that were quite active and I managed to get some nice shots of those. Also, I was pleased that a beautiful, male House Finch decided to pose for me.
A male Northern Bobwhite made a brief visit at the back of the viewing area, but I managed to get a photo with my Canon 70D and Tamron 150-600mm lens, as I had with all of these photos. He was about 60 feet away, but as I do with most of my photos, I still was able to crop for a nice close-up.
We decided to take a drive around the park. We asked Christie to join us so we spent a couple hours checking out all areas. Most of what we observed were too far for decent photos, but for birding we saw a total of 27 species for the morning. Here is one photo of a perhaps a young, or a female Scissor-tailed Flycatcher. The tail is quite shorter than normal male adult.
