Last week was really a pretty nice week for birding in the Texas Panhandle. I saw a lot of birds and roamed over a large chunk of the central Texas panhandle. The weather was pretty nice and I had good company when I wanted it and made a few solo runs when I wanted that. Plus, I was able to get some nice photos of a lot of birds, including a rare Golden-crowned Sparrow to add to my life list and the not so rare, but still unusual Franklin’s Gull and Long-billed Curlew. I got in the middle of a storm of pelicans while kayaking, and was seranaded by a solo Rufous-crowned Sparrow. Not a bad life at all.
Here’s a few more photos from last week
