Weekend Birding

Today is the start of the fall semester at CyFair college and so I've been too busy with work to do much birding recently. However, I did squeeze in an hour's walk at Addick's Reservoir last weekend.

I was hoping for migrating flycatchers but I didn't spot a single one. In fact, I saw only normal yardbirds (e.g., N Cardinals, Blue Jays and Carolina Chickadeees) until I reached an area with a large pond.

A Tricolored Heron and several Black-bellied Whistling Ducks (below) lifted off as I approached.

A Great Egret also took umbrage at my arrival.


A Snowy Egret was less concerned by my presence and continued catching and eating its breakfast as I watched.
