More Texas Big Sit Highlights

Here are some other avian highlights. I'll be brief today since Blogger is still playing a tattoo on my ability to upload photos (or fix typos). Besides, isn't it wordless Wednesday?

OrioleTree
On South Padre Island in spring you see lot of trees and shrubs with several birds in them. This tepeguaje has three orioles in it—at least.


CrummyIndigos
The indigo buntings were dropping into the bushes in twos and threes.

DickcisselTrio
Hundreds of dickcissels passed through during the night and day. These three paused for a photo.

EvilGreatTailedGrackle
This great-tailed grackle gave me the creeps. Wonder why?

BaltimoreOrioleOrange
The oranges we put out proved irresistible to this male Baltimore oriole.

SouthPadreBayView
Looking out onto the bay we saw an ever-changing cast of birds.

RubyThroatedHummerMale
I can never resist the chance to take photos of ruby-throated hummingbirds.
