After finding the Brown Booby in Corpus Christi, I headed to Rockport to visit a few more sites along The Great Texas Coastal Birding Trail. Rockport is famous for Whooping Cranes in winter and Hummingbirds in migration.
The nature trail and boardwalk are very nice, but I was hoping for more migrants.
The Baltimore Oriole is a winter bird, according to my field guide. It seems the birds don't use the same calendar that I do.
I returned the next morning to see if I could find any more birds. I captured a Northern Mockingbird with his breakfast.
I was very excited to see the Golden-fronted Woodpecker tapping on a pole. My first!
This is my Macro Monday shot. I should probably buy a field guide for all the beautiful and often strange flora I've seen. I don't know what it is, but it's my favorite color.
