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!
