Awright, sorry about the lack of recent posts, but I was out of the state. And while I usually only blog about Crane Lake, I must say that the south of Texas is an awesome place. Wow, the birding opportunities are phenomenal as wildlife refuges and nature preserves abound in the area. The state of Texas has taken the interest in the hobby of birding to a whole new level. And they have the birds to go with it. I was able to get 21 new life birds – pretty awsome for me! This area of Texas is able to boast about what they’ve termed “Texas Specialties”, these are common birds for them and they either occur only in south Texas or are uncommon in other parts of the U.S. Birds like the Chachalaca, Green Kingfisher, Green Jay, Clay-colored Thrush, Buff-bellied Hummingbird and several others. I’m still sorting through the numerous photos that I took during the trip.
This little Warbler was visiting the hummingbird feeder at my Mom’s place in Mission.
