All in Brazoria Wildlife Refuge
Breeding plumage changes range from non-existent to flamboyant. Raptors and birds of prey don't change at all but many birds look totally different as they get ready for the all-important breeding season. Many birds have brightly colored feathers to attract mates and to distinguish between juveniles and adults.
