Pelican in Rising Sun

In preparation for my two field trips that I’m leading to Bolivar Flats during Galveston’s FeatherFest, made a scouting trip to the coast last Sunday.  My original goal was to scout out the area but will have to try that one again as I didn’t get past the parking area due to a flock of Avocets being right there before the sun came up. 164 more words

Haiku: Gulf Coast in Winter

A recent road trip to the Bolivar Peninsula on the Texas Gulf Coast resulted in lots and lots of photos of birds and a haiku.  I swear the brown pelicans were posing for me in silhouette. 26 more words

White Morph Reddish Egret

Found two White Morph Reddish Egrets at Bolivar Flats last weekend while guiding my old buddy Newton.  He brought along Ruth Hoyt, who is an excellent professional photographer/guide at south Texas ranches, like Laguna Seca, where I first met her.  223 more words


Beach weekend.

We spent the weekend at Port Aransas – to see wooden boats, birds, waves and to soak up some salt air.   I love autumn on the Texas gulf coast.
