Spring Fallout Part Two


The Kleb Woods Senior bus trip made another trip to see what birds we could see during spring fallout. This trip we went to Anahauac and High Island.
Both places are great birding spots for spring migrations.

I love the legs on this Little Green Heron and the colors of the feathers are so lovely.

This Purple Gallinule is another unusual and lovely bird.

We were all fascinated with these Wilson's Phalaropes. They sit and spin in circles while they feed.
