Now that I have replaced my broken old camera, hopefully I will be updating this blog a little more often. These are all from a recent trip to Big Bend National Park.

I have been wanting to go to High Island for a while now. It is one of the premier sites in the US to see migratory birds, especially hawks in the fall and warblers in the spring. So when I knew I was going to be in the Houston area, I couldn't help a side trip. I didn't see any interesting birds there, I think I was a couple weeks too early for the big fall migration, but it was nice to look around, and I will definitely be going back in the spring.
Seen from the ferry between Galveston and Bolivar.

I heard reports of these birds nesting only 20 minutes from my house, so I drove out to check them out. They are very acrobatic, and seemed to enjoy the wind. I saw three total, as well as a couple of Red-shouldered hawks and several Mississippi Kites. A good day!
