Math and Magnification

Parked on the shoulder of the cutoff road under the Intracoastal Canal bridge, Bill Maroldo was working on a Great Blue Heron on his side and I had a nice Little Blue Heron perched on a post on mine. We had some sea fog so the light was nice and there were no crabbers to disturb the birds. Bill suggested I might like to use his 1.7x teleconverter instead of my 1.4x on my long lens.

You can already see where this is going, I bet. 

Working for Warblers

All birders and bird photographers look forward to Spring Migration when flocks of tired and hungry warblers land on our coasts. Many leave the Yucatan at dusk and fly the 600 miles straight across the Gulf of Mexico to arrive 11-14 hours later.

Traveling East

Monday's forecast for was heavy cloud cover all day and we headed east. Early. Dang, y'all drive in that traffic every day? We made it out to High Island a little after 9 am and after complaining again about the No Equipment Cart Rule to the nice (but sympathetic) Audubon lady we made our way up to the last platform.
