April 21 – Sabine Sampler

Yesterday afternoon before my talk at Golden Triangle Audubon last night, and this morning, I birded one of my very favorite spots, Sabine Woods (Texas) and nearby areas.

Special birds seen but no photographs taken include Black-throated Blue Warbler (male), Cape May Warbler, Yellow-billed Cuckoo, and Blue Grosbeak. Bird photographs shown below are of a Boat-tailed Grackle (additional photo shown with Texas longhorns), a Dickcissel launching itself from a wire, a perched Common Nighthawk, Loggerhead Shrikes, a Swainson’s Warbler scratching in the leaves and very hard to see, a roadside Seaside Sparrow, a couple of the 20 or so Tree Swallows on the road (shot through front windshield), and a Least Bittern at McFaddin NWR.

Tomorrow Debra and I plan to bird the Rockport area, our last full day in Texas for this trip.
