Spring Migration in south Texas
The incredible colors of spring. This is my first April in south Texas and it is marvelous. The soft colors of the mesquite trees, the yellow, pink and salmon-colored prickly pear cactus blooms, the hundreds of varieties of flowers. I love them all.
I've met many birders and photographers who can name all the species and even better, who willingly share their knowledge with anyone who asks. Looking for these birds is like hunting for hidden treasure.
Anyway, these photos will give you an idea of the beautiful colors these birds wear every day.
This is a "wish you were here" to all my family and friends - I'd love to share this exciting adventure with you. It's a marvelous treasure hunt!
