Birding Center Birds

Jo and I saw many birds during our brief visit to the Birding Center: Roseate Spoonbills, Black-necked Stilts, Avocets, Long-billed Curlews, Blue-winged Teal, Reddish Egrets, Dowitchers and numerous Willets and Sandpipers to name a few.



While the birds were within easy viewing range, most were too far away to capture with our camera. Only a couple came close enough to the observation pier for me to photograph.

Beautiful birds Marvin, glad to see that you had time to get a way a bit on your trip to the big T. Reminds me a bit of my florida trip, although I bonked on the avocets, stilts, and curlews. Isn't amazing how many birds are down there along the coast?

Those are marvelous birds: they nearly posed for you there. I know you could only get the two but I would be thrilled with that, they are gorgeous photos.

I bet I have been here before. I have been to several birding centers in TX. I love Roseate Spoonbills. ONe of my favorite birds. Lucky you getting to see one.
