Bolivar Birds

Mud flats and marshes close to the coast can be tidal or rain-fed depending on the location. With the abundant rain over the last few weeks a lot of areas are overflowing and too deep for the smaller waders. After cruising around the regular locations we have found our best birding spots to be on the coast.

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.
