Today’s birding began on the road to Sabine Pass, the road to and beyond Sabine Woods, and at Sabine Woods. It was a birdy morning, and by 10 am, my Texas total for the week was 22 warbler species, not bad for less than two days of birding (I drove over 300 miles each day for 3 of the 4 days so far). Debra Corpora and I ended the day birding in the Rockport area.
Shown below are some of my favorite pictures of birds seen today, plus a picture of Ben Horstmann and Debra Corpora. Ben found us the Yellow-crowned Night-Heron. Birds shown are White Ibises, Willet, American Bittern, Blackburnian Warbler, Scarlet Tanager, Palm Warbler, Yellow-crowned Night-Heron, Reddish Egret and Roseate Spoonbills.
And of course, a sunset to end the day – a pretty one, even if it lacks the mountains of Alaska.
Only in TEXAS; no new Alaska birds
