For a couple weeks in late April, I was traveling around the, birdy, state of Texas. I didn't have a chance to hit the coast, so it may not have been as birdy as it could have been, however there were many birds with some nice highlights. I spent most of my time conducting breeding bird surveys in Lyndon Johnson NHP and Lake Meredith NRA but was able to make a quick stop at Balcones Canyonlands for Golden-cheeked Warblers and Black-capped Vireos.
|One of many, this is the unmistakable Scissor-tailed Flycatcher.|
|An almost albino Northern Mockingbird. Not 1 but 2 were present at|
Lyndon Johnson NHP
|This picture was taken a few years ago due to the rainy conditions I|
encountered at Balcones. I did have many Golden-cheeks though!
|Birding doesn't have to be all serious . . . here is what I was introduced to|
as a "real" Texas bar.
