This morning I headed up to Kleberg County to see the Long-tailed Duck found yesterday by Glenn Perrigo at Kaufer-Hubert Park. When I got there Glenn pointed the bird out to me. She's a real cutie! #509 for my Texas list.
I headed up to Drum Point to look for the Nelson's Sharp-tailed Sparrow but didn't have any luck. But there were sure lots of birds around. Here's a Snowy Plover.
A flock of Black Skimmers were at the end of the road.
After leaving Drum Point I went looking for sparrows and was happy to find this Leconte's Sparrow.
And this Grasshopper Sparrow.
I was surprised to find I finished the day with 103 species.
