Welcome to my photo journal.

We got up early this morning to go on a guided Birding Tour which was the first program so to speak of the Laguna Vista's 4th Annual Birdfest. It turned out to be visiting the barkyards of 3 homes in the South Padre Island Golf Estates and the ponds around the golf course.
This is a birding corner the residents built over looking a pond, there was a Spotted Sandpiper spotted here.

The backyards were beautiful, the only birds at the feeders were blackbirds and each home had coffee and fresh baked goodies for us birders. Two of the owners were artists and had their work on display for sale.

These are Whistling ducks, they love golf courses, they are funny little birds.

We listened to 3 nature talks and looked at the various displays brought by the birding centers and photos in the photo contest. Time to call it a day, I couldn't stay awake on the drive home this afternoon but have gotten my second wind now to do a little blogging.
Have a nice weekend!

I have enjoyed catching up with you. We stayed in Kansas City this winter. I did miss Texas and the birds and butterflies.
Spring is wakening up a wee bit. Beautiful day today...
