Plenty of Birds Around

. While our yards have been quiet since good weather returned last weekend, there have been plenty of birds around in our area. I only wish I'd had more time for birding! A short visit to Kleb Wood and a drive along Longenbaugh Road added 8 species to my year list. A couple of brief walks around the CyFair campus each turned up 17-18 species, including year bird #99: a dozen Ring-necked Ducks. Here are a few of the photos from my week.

Eastern Meadowlark

House Wren

Eastern Phoebe

Loggerhead Shrike

Red-tailed Hawk

Black Vulture

Turkey Vulture

I loved the pictures! Great shots! It looks like you had a good week birding.

It wasn't a bad week, CE. There's almost always something to see around here in the winter. It's just a matter of remembering to get outside and look.
