Friday Fun: Lovin' the Summer Texans

Before heading out for a day in the field, I thought I'd share recent photos of some of my favorite Summer Texans...

The Barn Swallow:

The male Boat-tailed Grackle:

The female Boat-tailed Grackle and her beautiful mustard coloring:

The Great Blue Heron, elegant and always watchful:

The Purple Gallinule, arriving on the Texas coast to let us know summer is just around the corner:

The female Red-winged Blackbird, living with the false reputation of being one big sparrow:

And my childhood favorite, that every Texan should recognize, the Scissor-tailed Flycatcher:

May all your days be birdy days!
