Since my last post, Ann and I have mostly been hanging around the local area, looking for more new birds and new photo ops. I guess we are still unwinding from our Big Bend trip. The weather here has been fickle, as well. Around 90° one day, down to a current 51° as I write this around noon on April 28. A chilly day for west Texas.
Yesterday, though, it was pretty nice, albeit a bit windy. I caught this Vermilion Flycatcher darting among the trees at Middle Concho Park at Lake Nasworthy.
Also nearby, was this Great Blue Heron. One of my favorite wading bird subjects. We watched him fish for awhile, but he never came up with anything worthy of eating.
A few days earlier we were at the south portion of the large San Angelo State Park. We stopped at the blind but didn’t see anything of interest, but visited with some nice folks from South Dakota. We left there and decided to just drive through the park, as we sometimes see much more than we will at the blind. We were not disappointed.
When I started to drive away, this Bobwhite started singing so I stopped the car and took another shot.
We continued along and finished our drive with this Chipping Sparrow, who were available in great numbers.
Well, that’s all for this one. In the words of that former California governor, “Ah’ll be boch”.
