Carolina Wren and friends.

This past Friday morning Ann and I headed to Spring Creek Park here in San Angelo.  Birding had been pretty slow for awhile and we were hoping that things would be starting to pick up.   And it was.  Among other things a Carolina Wren made himself visible and treated us to several poses.  I hope you enjoy these photos.

We also saw this beautiful Orange-crowned Warbler.

And this cute little Yelllow-rumped Warbler.

It is great to see our winter birds finally getting settled in, especially these tiny bird that I enjoy photographing.  Of course, we had some record-setting warm weather, too, that helped.  Having said that, a cold front blew in this morning so we shall see how that affects the coming week.  Stay tuned………

  1. After seeing your orange-crowned warbler, I’m even more certain I saw a flock of them at the San Bernard wildlife refuge about a month ago. I wasn’t able to get any photos I’d be willing to publish, but it was interesting to see them hopping all over a stand of native cannas — Canna glauca, or water canna. Those flowers are yellow, which made picking the birds out of the background even harder!

  2. Glad they showed up. A friend who also follows birds commented that the numbers were considerably down this summer and fall. Have you noticed a big loss of bird numbers in your area?

  3. Colorful and cute! Thanks for adding some color to my kinda drab day. The photos are great and I know you and Ann enjoyed the hunt! hugs
