It has been exactly a week since my last post. Birding hasn’t been too exciting those seven days, mostly seeing the usual resident birds around. I did get some nice photos to show you, but I will get to them in a moment. Stay with me here.
First, I decided to prowl my archives to see what little surprises I might find. How about a little humor to start the week. These two photos are several years old. I have already posted them on FaceBook but I know a lot of you readers haven’t seen them yet.
Now that I have you in a good mood, here are some photos from the past week, all taken around the local parks here in San Angelo. We started out at Spring Creek Park. That is where I and Ann spotted this Osprey. About 300 yards away across the river and into the woods.
This Great Blue Heron was across the river, too, but only about 250 yards away.
These Yellow-rumped Warblers are scrambling around on the ground, making for an easier photograph.
This Eastern Phoebe is my favorite of the bunch. He posed for me in several spots.
Titmice are one of the most difficult for me to photograph, they are so quick and flighty. This one hesitated for a few extra seconds making it easy for me to get the shot.
This Great Egret came flying down the river. I quickly just aimed the camera and got lucky to lock the focus. I rattled off a few shots and this was the last one as he was almost out of sight.
Another little bird that is hard to photograph, is the Dark-eyed Junco.
We’re in a deep-freeze here with light freezing rain, today so I won’t be getting out for a day or two, when the sun might shine again. Fortunately, the cold doesn’t last long here. I hope you enjoyed the photos. I hope to write another post by the end of the week.
