This is part two of my vacation to Quintana, Texas. The following pictures weren’t actually taken at the Quintana Neotropical Bird Sanctuary, but instead were taken at either the San Bernard National Wildlife Refuge or the Brazoria National Wildlife Refuge. Both are very close to where I was staying in Quintana so that is why I am including these under this same trip.
This first bird, the Turkey Vulture, is certainly no Hooded Warbler, but I still find it a rather interesting looking bird.
The White Tailed Kite, is a very nice looking bird I think, and it is not one that I would want to mess with if I were a small rodent or lizard.
The White Faced Ibis, in it’s Spring plumage, is a very pretty bird with very pretty feathers. This one was preening when I photographed it.
The Eastern Meadowlark has one of the nicest songs of any bird. When we were driving through the meadow you could just hear the pleasant songs coming from this bird.
And, last but not least for this post, is the Common Yellowthroat. I’ve never been successful in photographing one of these birds before because they seem rather shy.
