Creepin' up there Mrs. Ed!

Can't wait to hear what 100 will be Chily.

Nice additions Resin. A friend of mine spotted a Little Gull in breeding plumage here in Harris County -- very rare! He was able to get photographs. He called me and I ran right out there, but the tide was coming up fast and all the gulls had been forced off the beach area. We couldn't find it again.

I went on the Yellow Rail Walk at Anahuac yesterday. It was AWESOME! One flew up and hovered in the wind right in front of my face. The men on either side of me reached for it but I just stood dumbstruck staring.

Texas list is up to 245 with lots of great birds. Those I can remember off hand are:
Gray-cheeked Thrush
Least Bittern (saw 2)
Yellow Rail
Gull-billed Tern (lifer)
Solitary Sandpiper
Seaside Sparrow
Swainson's Hawk
Fulvous Whistling Duck

I have a poor pic of one of 9 Whimbrels that I saw and a couple well-doctored pics of the 2 Least Bitterns.

Overwhelmed? There's a lot to see here. Try starting at our homepage.
