Waders on South Padre Island

Our last day in Texas was at San Isabel and South Padre Island, the latter at the newly opened World Birding Center with about a mile of boardwalk over the marsh. Here are a few images of the waders.

Great Blue Heron ...

Reddish Egret ...



White Ibis ...

Tricolored Heron ...

Little Blue Heron ...


I love my digital camera and my Canon 50D. But there is no restraint on picture taking. I returned from Texas with over 1700 photos. I have reduced that number to under a thousand, and I have a long way to go to work through them all. Such fun! And the birding was great! - hope yours is too.

More soon.

...wow! Fantastic photos. I've never seen a Reddish Egret but would love to. I've fallen behind. I need to go and catch up and read about the Rio Grande Valley Birding Festival...

HI Chris,
1700 pictures, gosh good luck with the post-treatment and the sorting out... This is gonna take you some time, but it also does mean that you got a nice birding time over there. At least we can see that with this first set which is fantastic... Many species that I've never seen and that are beautifully captured.. Great job.
