High Island, Texas: 29 March 2010


Just a quick one to say that we all arrived back in High Island Texas for a month-long stint in this migration Mecca. As we unpacked the rental car a distinctive shape sitting on the top of a tree in Boy Scout Woods drew us to a true harbinger of spring, a Scissor-tailed Flycatcher. All too soon this distinctive "kingbird" took flight, when it was joined by two other birds, that drifted over 5th Street and were soon lost from view as they moved off on their continuing migration. A great start to this spring season on the Upper Texas Coast...

My Sam likes the photo. He said he saw them in Oklahoma, and didn't know they were in Texas. (I was showing him the pygmy marmoset photo, but he liked this one better.) Rebecca
