First stop this morning was the bird blind. There I met Josh and Warren.
|Haven't figured this one out yet and Josh turned me on to a field guide that|
seems like it is halfway user friendly so I'm waiting for my copy to arrive.
|Apparently this Ladder-back Woodpecker was quite a catch but I was alone|
in the blind when it came by.
|Maybe an American Dipper but I have my doubts|
After finally leaving the blind I headed out on a trail at the north end of the park
|Turkey tracks. Maybe out enjoying the trail this morning too??|
|Think she's pissed that I was looking at her butt??|
|Bluebonnet seed pods. These will dry out in a few weeks then burst open|
on a spring-like mechanism to scatter the 5 or 6 large seeds in each pod.
|I don't know for sure but I'll bet this is called fiddle back something|
|I guess this Black Vulture is either a little camera shy or had drunk his fill just as I snapped the shot|
|And since I was in the area I stopped by the Lyndon B Johnson NHP. The family cemetery is just to the right of this photo. As a naturalized Texan, Ladybird Johnson has a place in my heart and has been here along side her husband since 2007.|
|Had to take the above photos for my brother and nephews. This is the plane the president used to get into the small airstrip on his ranch.|
