Wild Bird Wednesday – 130

So glad to be settling back in to a semi-normal routine.  I have missed my birding blog friends.  Our son’s girl friend’s dad is an avid birder!  I certainly enjoyed visiting with him at Thanksgiving.  Then he presented me with The Sibley Field Guide To Birds as a gift.  Yesterday and today I have been searching the book for the birds photographed on our early December trip to the Texas coast.  I would like to share a few with you.

I was not certain if this was a plastic bag or a bird at first.  Had to use some zooming to determine.

This lovely reddish egret was not the least bit happy about the wind causing such a bad hair day!

 Then I just was way too close for comfort!

Great Blue Herons were foraging, resting and flying about the birding area.
