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………
I love birds, and I love looking at your amazing photos of them!
Thank you very much, Bambi. I really appreciate it.
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!
Thank you, Linda. I am glad you were able to see these wrens. They are such cuties.:-)
The Carolina, Orange-crowned and butter butt are nice to see at this time of year and shows such a bright sunny day. Brightens my spirits as I recover from the flu.
Thank you, Jane. I enjoy seeing all of the little birds during the winter. 🙂
Great photos and post, Bob.
Thank you much, Dave.
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?
Thank you, Linda. Yes, I have noticed a loss in bird numbers this year. I hope it is not a trend.
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
Thank you, Beth. Hugs, and Merry Christmas. 🙂
