Drive-by Shootings!

...from the car window, along Ocean Drive near the Texas A&M Campus and Bay.  Great Blue Herons, Willet, Great Egret and a yard full of whitewashed wrought iron fencing with a dollop of oleander bushes, and a cardinal. singing on the treetop :

  12. Oh my GOSH! It is so amazing to me that you can just drive and take these shots from your car! We would have to go far away or to a zoo. They are splendid photos, my fave is the heron. I have read that Texas has the most variety of birds.
