First Days of Summer

I drove up to Palo Duro Lake yesterday, a small lake about an hour’s drive north of my house. The lake itself is nearly dried up, but it is still a pretty good place to bird. Eastern Kingbird Mississippi Kite. I saw this Green Heron this morning at Lake Meredith’s Bugbee Canyon.  

Palo Duro Canyon, Late Spring

Two Posts in One Day

I’ve already posted once today, so I thought I’d throw everyone off balance by posting again. These were taken today at Lake Meredith. Nothing unusual, but some nice photos, especially of the RHWO. Cattle Egret Northern Cardinal Red-headed Woodpecker

Bewick’s Wren

Winter Birds at my Feeder

Here are the last few pictures I took in 2017 from my feeders at home. 2017 was a pretty good year for birding, I saw 163 species of birds and never left the panhandle. Highlights would have to include the nesting Western Grebes and Clark’s Grebes at Meredith and the Red-breasted Nuthatch that’s been hanging…

Last Week at Palo Duro Canyon

I took a trip down to PDC last week and did a little hiking and birding. I didn’t see anything unusual but even so, a morning birding is still a fine morning.
