It is still pretty warm around here. Mid 90s and higher. We may just skip fall and go directly to winter without passing go and collecting our $200. 🙂
We did spot some duck types way off in the middle of O.C. Fisher Lake. I guess they can keep cooler out there. We are not seeing them closer to shore yet. As a matter of fact there are few winter birds having arrived yet.
But there are still of our usual residents around and we have no trouble spotting a few at San Angelo State Park.
Here are a few images from our forays there in the past few days. Enjoy.
This is probably one of the best photos of a Northern Bobwhite that I have taken to date.
These American White Pelicans did a brief flyover while were visiting San Angelo State Park.
Belted Kingfishers always lead me a merry chase. This one finally stopped for a few minutes near Lake Nasworthy.
Notice the remnants of a grasshopper in this photo of the Northern Mockingbird.
A Greater Roadrunner at San Angelo State Park. They seem to be in great numbers there.
The Loggerhead Shrike speaks for itself. It is doing it’s thing, waiting for a snack to impale on one of those thorns.
The white eye-ring is prominent on this Vesper Sparrow.
The next two photos are of the same Greater Roadrunner at San Angelo State Park. I liked both poses so I decided to post both.
This Nine-banded Armadillo is a young one. It was feeding along the road in the state park and did not mind me getting this close-up.
I hope you enjoyed these images. Check back in a few days for a few more.
Great photos, Bob! That armadillo is an incredible looking thing. Nothing to compare with that here! Hedgehogs, I guess, but they have a different kind of armour. Amazing that you’re still getting temps in the mid-90s. Dropped to freezing here recently – frosts are starting the autumn colours off nicely.
Thank you, Jo. Those armadillos are amazing. Yes, the weather is un-seasonable, but forecasts for next week finally getting into the eightys. The northern state are starting to get some snow. 🙂
Very nice assortment; the bobwhite and roadrunner photos are are beauts! Thanks for sharing. hugs
Thank you, Beth. Again, I am glad you liked them. 🙂
That armadillo bird is so interesting 😉 Like all your finds for today.
Yeah, I had a hard time finding it my guide. 🙂 Thanks, Jane
