We were particularly looking for warblers today and although it was a relatively ‘slow day’ at Boy Scout Wood, we did manage to find a few, including this fine specimen of Hooded Warbler. Photo courtesy of Jake
Our first full days birding in Texas since our departure from the UK. We spent around eight hours watching migrants in a few small blocks of woodland and yards on High Island, starting and finishing with more exploration of Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge. We finished the day on a list just shy of a hundred – not a bad start for our GABRAT.
Other nice birds for the day included this handsome Brown Thrasher
And this Upland Sandpiper – strange looking birds!
