This is the url to find out when the Kemps Ridley Sea Turtles are going to be released! It's a blast to see these releases! It's free and very fun! The kids get to see the tiny baby turtles up close and you can take pictures. Don't wear white and there are other tips at the website above.
This morning was clear and cool. We had a rain storm last night. No damage at our Laguna Shore Village but it got gusty for sure! I went out on Padre Island National Seashore Park last night from 6-7 pm and got a few nice birds etc.
This is a Crested Caracara or Mexican Eagle!
This is an Eastern Meadowlark singing his heart out!
This is a Wilson's Phalarope I think. I saw this guy at the new photo blind built near the Park visitor's center. I really like that spot!
These are Black Bellied Whistling Tree Ducks. Notice the turtles too! I think they are Red Eared Sliders. I hope you enjoyed.
This morning was very nice. The air was still and the birds were singing their hearts out. These Turkey Vultures seemed to be discussing the plans for the day.
One flew off as I approached but I still snapped a few shots with my Nikon 810 and 500 lens. I had to shoot into the sun because the water is on the other side. I really appreciate Vultures because of the dirty job they do! Our intelligent creator knew what we would need. We have plenty of Vultures in our area. Perhaps the water front with an occasional dead fish or the ranch lands with the critters trying to cross the roads.
