During our travels next winter we hope to return to High Island, Texas during migration. It is a lovely site seeing all the migrating birds stopping for a rest prior to heading to their nesting or summer grounds.

Our stop there in March was fun! I had seen, for the first time, the Black-bellied Whistling Duck a few months before while staying at Myakka River State Park and the Reddish Egret at Fort De Soto County Park. I wonder where this Reddish guy is heading?
