Springtime is by far my favorite time of year, especially here in Texas. The temperatures are pleasant, the flowers start blooming and the songbirds are a plenty. Eastern Phoebes are perennial around our property and I’m always excited to see them milling about.

Another photograph of a Great Egret from my trip to the Aransas National Wildlife Refuge last year. This one is of a Great Egret Shadow.

I ran across this image while was processing photos from my last visit to the bird blind. So, here is another Northern Cardinal for your viewing pleasure.

I spotted this Ladder-backed Woodpecker earlier this week while relaxing after a long day of photographing the Big Bend National Park.
I’m not a big fan of Blackbirds but I found this one interesting. I was out photographing birds at the Pedernales Falls State Park bird blind when I spotted a Red-winged Blackbird.
I posted a photo of a female Ruby-throated Hummingbird last week. This photograph is of her male counterpart. The male has the ruby coloring around his throat.
A pair of Phoebes decided a few years ago to make themselves at home in the overhang of our porch and every year we look forward to their return.
I made a trip yesterday to Pedernales Falls State Park to photograph birds. When I arrived at the bird blind I noticed that they had the hummingbird feeders up.
Since yesterday’s post was a male Northern Cardinal, I thought it only appropriate to show you a female Northern Cardinal.
It’s bird time again! I have not posted a Cardinal for awhile so I thought it was bout time to do so. Northern Cardinals are one of my favorite birds.
I had never photographed an Osprey before and I can tell you that these birds don’t like to be photographed. At least not while the photographer is on a boat.

I posted an image last week of a juvenile Whooping Crane so I thought it would be helpful if I posted one of an adult.
I encountered these Great Egrets during my trip to the Gulf of Mexico in February. It was fascinating to watch these birds interact.
There have been multiple Cooper’s Hawks around the neighborhood for the past couple of weeks and I have been trying to photograph them each time I hear them.
Many times Mother Nature leaves me in awe. That was the case when I visited the Aransas National Wildlife Refuge and saw this magnificent Great Blue Heron.
Great Blue Herons are some of my favorite birds. I especially like their color combinations. They are even more elegant during the mating season.
The Double-crested Cormorant is a difficult bird to photograph because of its dark feathers. They are one of the more interesting birds I have photographed.
The Wood Duck is one of the most colorful birds in this area. I had the opportunity to photograph them while practicing my bird photography on Lady Bird Lake.

I decided to head downtown to the lake last week to practice my waterfowl photography. It was while I was there that I noticed this wonderful Great Egret.
You’ve heard of the movie “Mockingjay”, well, this is “Spinningjay”… I was out at the Pedernales Falls SP when I spotted this Western Scrub Jay.
A friend and I went out to photograph ducks at the Pedernales Falls State Park duck pond. When we arrived, all the ducks flew away and the pond was empty.
I recently posted an image of a Black Crested Titmouse but I was able to capture a better image at the Pedernales Falls SP bird blind so I thought I would post it.
I’m really enjoying my new birding hobby. The Black-Crested Titmouse is the fourth bird I’ve showcased on my blog.
