South Padre Island Birdie Smorgasbord!

Here we are, continuing on from my last post from South Padre Island, TX.  Mom followed the direction of the Great Blue Heron in the last post and went over to the South Padre Island Birding Center.
Mom did her best to find me a smorgasbord of new birdie friends!

First up to greet mom, was this fashionably purple, Little Blue Heron.  He was very friendly with mom and kept hanging out near her.

Next to introduce himself was this Snowy Egret.  He sure has some wonderful yellow feet.  He is also quite fashionable!

I think this guy is a Tri-Colored Heron, and he was very striking in appearance.  Mom could not get close enough to him to speak to him, however.

I have seen these before and this is a Great White EgretHe was spending the day fishing!

Last but not least, this is a White Ibis.  He was a bit elusive and this is the best shot mom got of one of these guys.....

....till he flew away, showing his fashionable black wing tips!

So it went on mom's birdie smorgasbord Scavenger Hunt!
Mom tried the best she could, and met as many new birdie friends for me as possible!

More to follow in my next post from South Padre Island!

Before you go, please stop by JB's SMALL WORLD too, thanks!
