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

Fall at Lake Meredith

So, it’s been 3 weeks since my last post. I have a ton of photos but I just don’t seem to be able to make myself edit them and post them as often as I should. Here’s a few from Lake Meredith taken over the last few weeks. I have quite a few more from…

Misty Morning on the Lake

I took the kayak out onto Meredith yesterday morning and paddled around for a couple of hours. It was cool and there was a little fog and no wind. Here’s a few photos from the lake. The little Clark’s Grebes chicks are nearly grown. I took these photos before the fog had lifted near Martin…

Red-headed Woodpecker

I came across some Red-headed Woodpeckers at Cedar Canyon the other day. There was at least 3 and perhaps as many as 5, it was hard to tell as they were flitting around a lot and I was unable to ever see them all at once. This one was kind enough to stop and pose…

Miscellany

Here’s yet another post to try to catch up a little. I go  birding almost daily, missing 2 or 3 days a week because of work and I usually take pictures. I’m not a very good photographer and rely mostly on luck and take hundreds of pictures each day, hoping that there will be a…

Catching Up

I should be ashamed, I’ve neglected this blog the last couple of weeks and I’ve no real excuse-I’ve been birding, I’ve been taking pictures, and even processing them. I’ve got them ready to post, I just haven’t done it. there’s been a couple of birthdays, my own was one, I turned 62 this year and…

Early Morning Walk at Spring Canyon

I got up early the other morning and drove out to Spring Canyon at Lake Meredith and walked around the several ponds there. It was a beautiful morning, especially for the last week of winter and I was lucky enough to get several nice photos. Enjoy. Cinnamon Teal and Blue-winged Teal Ruddy Duck female Belted…

More Palo Duro Canyon Birds

Here’s a few more photos from last week’s Palo Duro Canyon trip. Nothing unusual, but I even get excited seeing the regulars. White-crowned Sparrow Golden Fronted Woodpecker Black-crested Titmouse Fox Sparrow American Goldfinch Spotted Towhee This House Finch has a more orangish hue than red, not sure why this color variation occurs. This is the first…

Watering Hole

A few more pictures from Palo Duro Canyon in Randall County, Texas. I spend a lot of time here hiking and photographing birds. The park rangers at PDC have set up a blind and feeder station in the canyon and it has a water feature that the birds love. Brown Thrasher House Finch Pine Siskin…
