We had to return early from our Fort Davis trip. A few medical problems, but nothing to worry about. We’re both 100% healthy, but unfortunately I did not get great opportunities for photographs. The great news is that my computer was ready from the shop with Windows 7 installed. It is like getting a new computer. I finished installing the pertinent software that I use for photo editing, etc, and I am ready to go.
In the past few days, we managed to get out to the local parks and obtained some images for you. These are a few of the best.
This cute little Common Nighthawk was perched in plain view, although we almost missed him because he blended in so well.
I had a problem with this photo. Initially I thought it was a Vesper Sparrow, which if it was, it would have been here way too early. I posted it on FaceBook for opinions, and after much discussion, it was finally concluded that it is a Cassin’s Sparrow.
When we drove out to Spring Creek Park we were fortunate to see this pair of Black-bellied Whistling Ducks with about eight little ducklings in tow. What a cute family. They were pretty far away so it was difficult to actually how many little ones there were.
Last, but now least, is the photo of a female Ladder-backed Woodpecker. I think this my best to date of this species female.
I hope you enjoyed these images. Now that temps are starting to cool a little bit, and with the upcoming migration season I hope to get many more.
A side note: My 2016 calendars arrived, and I still have my beautiful DVDs. If interested in either of them, mail a check for 25.00 to me at Bob Zeller, 4401 White Ash Ln, San Angelo, TX, 76904-4528. I will send either of them by Priority Mail to you. Also you may contact me at email@example.com.
Happy shooting, and Happy Birding. 🙂
