~Today’s Feathered Friend-Northern BobWhite

Lake Colorado City State Park, Texas

We were sitting at the dining table in the RV, at Lake Colorado City State Park, drinking hot chocolate. The day was cold, cloudy and very windy keeping up mostly inside. Kloudy alerted us to the fact that something was in the area. Looking out the window we spotted a covey of Northern Bobwhites.

I scrambled to get my camera to take some photos. These are not the best quality shots, but I enjoyed seeing this group.

This is the closest I have ever been to a covey of Northern Bobwhites and the most I have ever seen at one time.

All alone.
All alone, but not lonely.

We spent two nights at Lake Colorado City State Park, waiting out the snowy weather in Colorado.

Instead of heading to Amarillo and spending our time in a private RV park, we chose to stay another day in this lovely Texas State Park, observing nature without neighbors.

This was our second visit to Lake Colorado City State Park.

  1. Sheila,
    Thanks for sharing the great pics of both the State Park and the Bobwhites. I like that you stayed at the State Park rather than going to a private park. The setting looks so peaceful and private. I’m assuming it’s the time of year. Hope to see you on the courts in Loveland when you return.

    1. Hi Mary Lou, you are welcome! Nice to chat with you. We so enjoy state parks and spend about 95% of our travel time in them. They are each beautiful in their own way. Private RV parks are sometimes necessary, depending on the time of year and where we are. We tried to get in South Llano State Park in Junction, TX (one of my favorites) and it was full, because of spring break. Next time!

      Thanks for stopping by! You bet, hope to see you on the courts!! Can’t wait. 😉
