Near Italy TX – December 2019

Melinda and I went out birding a couple of times while I was visiting Italy TX. Shanna went with us both times which is great since she can really spot birds. Dad also came along on one of the drives. I saw my first Blue headed vireo!! Too much fun – Jenny

So many, many, flighty, busy, Northern cardinals. It took a lot of shots to get this one

Another cardinal

And this is when I’m leaning out the car door, twisting around and hoping the bird holds still…

There were so many kildeer near the office, it was amazing. Sadly, only this one posed.
