Melinda and I did one short birding expedition near Italy TX, and looked for birds everywhere we went including a brief side trip to White Rock Lake in Dallas to view the Monk Parakeets just before dropping me off at the conference hotel.
A few of the standout birds included:
This red shouldered hawk I originally identified as a coopers. He was very small and far away. It is only with the camera and then the computer that we were finally able to see him clearly enough to really identify him. Have I said how much I LOVE my new lens? Well, I do.
I’ll need to add my bird list from the week eventually, I just can’t seem to find it. I do know it included:
Great tailed grackles
Eurasian collared doves
White crowned sparrows
Red shouldered hawk
