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?

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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