While trying to get my new computer up and running, I just had to take a few breaks to get out for some birding and photography. I needed to relieve the stress. But I certainly have a feeling of accomplishment. I had a few glitches and problems, but along with encouragement and help from my dear friend, Deb, up in Tennessee, and my wife, Ann, the job got done.
Because of time limitations, we just hit the local parks for a few hours. I managed to come away with a few usable photos. Also I believe we added about three more birds to our 2016 list. We are at 103 now for the year. The weather was really gorgeous. Hard to believe it is only mid-February.
First a Pied-billed Grebe in Lake Nasworthy at Spring Creek Park. These little guys are cuties.
A Great Blue Heron at same location. He sat on this buoy for quite awhile.
A Northern Flicker pecking away at something on the ground.
One of several Black-crested Titmouses along the brushy fence line. They re cute, but very feisty.
The first spring American Robin for us, at Middle Concho Park.
I hope you enjoy these photos. Click on any of them to see enlargements.
‘Till next time, Happy Birding!
