Vacationing And Birding In Quintana Texas Part Two



Here is part 2 of my vacationing and birding trip to Quintana.

First is a Field Sparrow sitting in a tree.  Their were others on its species just outside the frame of this picture.

Another small bird I saw who appeared pretty tired was a White Throated Sparrow hiding in a bunch of twigs (at least I hope that’s what it is)

Yet another Sparrow, this one I believe is a Savannah Sparrow.  Nope, it’s a Song Sparrow.

One more that took me a while to figure out, was a Rose Breasted Grosbeak

If we head over towards the beach and jetty, there are lots of birds over there as well.  The Ruddy Turnstone was a common bird that I saw.

After standing on the log for a while, one decides to walk around.

It then stops and appears to stare at it’s reflection.

Don & Kate - Nice job once again! Sparrows are plain in a way but beautiful, and you did a good job capturing them. Nice work with the sea birds too!December 21, 2011 – 4:10 pm
