I am feeling better now that I can get out into my nature environs again. Traveling through the San Angelo State Park, I came upon this beautiful Scissor-tailed Flycatcher. I pulled the car off the road. The bird continued to pose for me, and I think I came away with one of my best photos of one in a long time. I hope you enjoy. (click on it and the other images to see enlargements.)
We also ventured to the north section of the park. This Great Blue Heron was standing in a pond in the North Concho River.
Before we left that area, I had to take a shot of this Black-tailed Prairie Dog.
The following morning we made a short visit to Spring Creek Park and spotted some Eastern Phoebes cavorting in some brush. One of them stopped long enough to take a breather on a wire fence.
Migration isn’t in full swing here yet because of our lingering 100° days. But cooler weather so projected for the next few days so birding should start improving.
I would be remiss if I didn’t remind you of my new DVD that I recently produced with the help of DST Productions in Knoxville, Tennessee. One hundred of my finest work, including birds, wildlife, and landscapes. Truly a beautiful collection set to some beautiful music. In 1080P HiDef. As many of you know, I am a very trusting individual. You can have this DVD if you will mail me a check for 25.00 that includes any taxes and shipping expenses. My address is Bob Zeller, 4401 White Ash Ln., San Angelo, TX. I will ship it immediately by Priority Mail. By the way, it would make great Christmas gifts. I have references available if you like.
Of course, my book, “Birds, Beasts and Buttes” is still selling very well. Total cost to you is 65.00.
Happy Birding to all. 🙂
