a photo I’m kinda proud of. This is a Common Nighthawk. Like it’s name suggest, it is a bird that flys around looking for insects to feed on late in the evening into early night. I saw this one after the sun was down, just enough light to capture an image. They have an erie, buzzing call.
I also like this shot of a Swainson’s Hawk. I think there was a nest nearby because right after I took this photo, this hawk got into it (fight) with a Red-tailed Hawk that was passing by.
Anyone out there know what this bird is? Looks like a pre-historic animal of some kind. This was taken at the San Antonio KOA.
It was nesting time all-over Texas. This White-eyed Vireo didn’t appreciate my presence one bit. Just go away would ya!
Did I say it was nesting season? Sure I did and here’s more proof. One of three baby Barred Owls momma had. We could hear them hootin’ all night long.
And here’s another up-side down bird. A Black and White Warbler. Fun, fun to watch. Hard to photograph because they seem to prefer the shade.
I might have posted this bird’s pic before but he’s so darned cute I can’t help myself. A Black-crested Titmouse.
Maybe the male Painted Bunting gets all the attention with those colors “painted” on him but the female, pictured below, has a beauty of a different kind. Agree?
The answer to the scary bird photo is Blue Jay (baby). Here’s a photo of the bird grown up.
Birds were singing all over Texas. This Summer Tanager is singing goodby for now and happy Birding to youawl.
