Serendipity...A Great Kiscadee!
This Family of three live this time of year near the Goose Island Sate Park.
The Oyster Catcher looks much cooler up close!
all of our tanks have arrived at Gatewoods. I went & took a few pics today of them and they told me I could save some money by doing the acid etching and spraying on the two part resin myself. So I will show up tomorrow morning and go to work. We might be able to take the boat over Monday to have them installed. The following are the things we have been doing to stay out of jail while waiting for the tanks:
We drove to Fulton and checked into a hotel for 3 days of non stop birding:
Day 3 Tommy Moore's Skimmer Boat and the Whooping Crane tour in Aransas Bay, Mesquite Bay and the ICW. We saw about 30 Whooping Cranes. My favorite on this tour other than the Whoopers were the Oyster Catchers. See his site at: http://www.whoopingcranetours.com/
The admiral and I can pretty much spot and identify just over 100 species that are either residents of the Coastal Bend or Migrating through. We keep a copy of "The Sibley Field Guide to Birds of Eastern North America" http://www.amazon.com/Sibley-Field-Guide-Eastern-America/dp/067945120X with us always to confirm and discuss our sightings. As spring approaches a lot of the birds are changing colors so we will be tested again to correctly identify our sightings.
And last but not least we are just in the begining stages of learning how to Tweet...again another requirement by our daughter Lia... ....find us there.
