High Island, Texas, Smith Oak Rookery, April, 2017
Very excited to see babies in the nests; a first for us.

High Island, Texas, Smith Oaks Rookery.
It must be a real drag to sit on the nest for hours at a time.
Up next, the fuzzies!

Birding, one of my favorite hobbies, can be enjoyed just about anywhere. All you need is a pair of binoculars and if you like a birding book to help you identify what birds you are spotting. It is a good way to get in some hiking as well.
When traveling across Texas it isn’t difficult to find interesting, diverse and beautiful, birding spots.
High Island, Texas not far from Beaumont, is world renowned for its birding especially during migration periods. I love to visit Smith Oaks Santuary to see what is going on. And, this time of year it is a busy place!
You can read about the birding opportunities in this area at the web-site below.
I was able to capture this Great Egret flying over the rookery carrying nesting material. His nest sitting mate was patiently waiting for him to bring her this gift.
