Sometimes you don’t have to go far to find birds. And wildlife!
Arrgghh. We haven't had a hotter summer in ages. Day after day of brilliant blue skies, record-breaking heat and very little rain. All our favorite bird places have dried up and the few times we have ventured out, the promised cloudiness turned out to be a mirage. I know, this time last year we were recovering from Harvey and all the flooding, but this heat has been hard to take.
These triple-digit days are too much for getting out and chasing birds. It is amazing what you can do if you let your imagination run wild….
And there was the day we found not one but TWO Reddish Egrets! It doesn’t get much better than that!
Sometimes the weather forecasts are right… and sometimes they are not.
OMG. What is that? And what is it doing?
What to do when it is too hot to get outside and take new photos? Well, you can work on the old images and make something completely different.
We found a bit of this and that at Brazos Bend, nothing remarkable until we turned the corner from Warbler Alley onto the trail around Elm Lake. Just at the edge of the water was a beautiful Black-crowned Night Heron.
