Birds, birds and more birds! This page contains our "feathered friends" - from wading to swimming to song and by the sea. These were taken at various locations around south, southeast and central Texas. This is just a small sampling of the various species in my files. Each image will caption where the photo was taken, but if you have any questions or need more specific information, feel free to email me.
