Well, today was supposed to be a red-letter birding day. My friend Dave and I had planned to charter a small boat to get up close for good photos of the area's endangered Whooping Cranes. Mother Nature didn't cooperate, however. Yesterday at mid-afternoon, the north wind strengthened and the temperature dropped like a rock. Last night, sustained 30 mph winds with gusts to 50 rocked the RV. Today, the temperature has been in the 30s all day, with strong north winds...not a good day for photography!
We'll try again to go out on Sunday, but in the meantime here are a few images of birds I have been able to photograph. Most were taken at the Leonabell Turnbull Birding Center in Port Aransas.
