There sure are a lot of birds I’ve never seen out here before. We’re staying at Country Inn and Cottages out in Fredericksburg, Texas. The one bird I saw today that I was unable to get a picture of was a Summer Tanager. Maybe I’ll get lucky and get a picture tomorrow.
A very common bird out here that we see all day long is the Scissor Tailed Flycatcher. I think I’ve seen about 4-5 different ones flying around and hanging out in the trees.
These birds seem pretty social. In the picture above, it landed on a wire right above my head. I barely had enough distance between myself and my lens to get an in focus picture.
This evening I went out to take more pictures and noticed these little birds running around in this field with the Cattle and Deer. They are Lark Sparrows.
Leecy’s favorite bird has been this male Peacock that’s a permanent resident. While the outdoor kittens were eating their food, the Peacock put on a full display trying to scare them away. To me this picture looks almost fake, but I promise, it’s a real bird.
Another new bird (for me) was this Western Kingbird.
