It's been a glorious two days here along the Coastal Bend of Texas!!! Plenty of sunshine, blue skies, mild temperatures and so much bird song in our yard. I'm a happy camper. The sweet smell of Springtime.
I did make a post for my Birding Photo Blog today. I think you may enjoy the photos of the black crowned night herons we spotted a few weeks ago. The young-un was busy preening itself, I got a nice, if not comical, pose with that one...its head all twisted and a beautiful bright orange eye sparkling in the light of the day....[the link is above in my green 'note' box.]
Yesterday, Bud and I took a short stroll along the seawall and we both were dazzled by the sparkle of the Gulf Water! Of course there was a ulterior motive to our walk. The Rare Brown Booby [water bird rarely comes near land unless to breed] arrived on the Marina's T-head again this Spring. There was a lot of excitement throughout our area and the near-by states' bird enthusiasts who were informed. I expect more birders to arrive to see if they can find the bird!! Again, this morning the ABA [American Bird Association] has a recent posting that it was spotted on the short jetty!! Altho, Bud and I didn't see it yesterday, we'll try again another day. We ended up going to the nearby city park to see if any Spring Migratory Birds were arriving. Walked some distance around and around, until I was beginning to tire out some, and we returned home and I napped again. LOL
Some of the bushes within the park's boundaries were all abloom ---
