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.

Of Course They Fly Away... They Are BIRDS!

Scissor-tailed Flycatchers have beautiful coloring and are a huge challenge. Most of the time you see them on a post or wire and they fly off before you can even get the camera in position. It was surprising these guys let us walk around aiming the bazookas at them. Even at close distances, it is difficult to keep the long tail in focus and within the frame. They do flick the tail a lot.

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.
