Surfside Beach, Texas is one of our favorite birding locations. We made a quick trip on Tuesday and it did not disappoint.
It was a good year. Lots of photos of secretive Soras, shy Least Bitterns and you can never have too many images of Reddish Egrets. We had quite a few great days and I got better at birds-in-flight with all the practice.
Sometimes the weather forecasts are right… and sometimes they are not.
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.
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.
