It’s a Party

When we came to the Rockport area, we had no idea that we were entering one of the best bird-watching areas in the United States. Many different species live here year-around (great blue herons), migrate through here (hummingbirds) or make it their winter home (whooping cranes). In the area where I took this this picture, e-bird reports that 100 different species of birds have been sighted IN THE LAST 7 DAYS! There may have been more long telephoto lenses here at the park than at the Super Bowl. Pictured here are short-billed dowitchers, a couple common gallinules, an American coot and blue-winged teals. Maybe. So hard to tell.

This photograph was taken last Saturday morning at the Leonabelle Turnbull Birding Center in Port Aransas, Texas. (Nikon Z5, 1/640 sec at f/5.6, ISO 100, 400mm, cropped)
