We drove out of town to the allotted stake out and walked just 50m from the road before being confronted by a lichen covered nestbox. The noise of our approach had brought an adult to the entrance, and it soon popped (and pooped!) out onto a nearby stump.
The only problem was it was too close to focus on. A few steps back and I nailed it. Meantime I was surrounded by a swarm of Mosquitos who enjoyed their Celtic buffet while I snapped. Pain and blood were accepted for such an awesome lifer.
Now where are the anti-hystemines?
My partner in crime tells the tale of our Texas jolly with a bunch of stunning images. Clever girl 😉
Look down the right hand side at recent posts and find out the birding action from Bruce peninsula bird observatory, where I have been staying for the past couple of weeks.
Global birding doesnt get much betyter and that is why Texas hosts a series of sites combined known as the World Birding Centre. Google it and be amazed. Visit and be awe struck.
White, 5 feet tall and mega rare – that’s Whooping Cranes. Just over 300 are left in the wild, with most wintering at the one site on the Texas coast. Aransass Bay. we visited, chartered a boat, and got out to see them. Not just one, but 29, so nearly 10% of the world population. What a privelage and long may this species not only hang on, but increase in the wild.
While in Texas I had one of my most memorable birding experiences ever with a host of herons at Aransass Bay near Rockport. Great White, Great Blue. Tri coloured, Snowy, Reddish, Little blue, Black crowned Night, Cattle Egret, Roseate Spoonbill all breeding together. One of natures amazing spactacles.
