July 23, 2015 - Old Port Isabel Road & South Padre Island
Very fuzzy Redhead that nonetheless isn't supposed to be here now!
Reddish Egret dances for his supper at South Padre. Some dark morph birds will have a few white feathers in their wings.
Today's larid flock consisted of Royal, Sandwich, and Black Terns, with a token Laughing Gull (out of view at the moment).
A closer view that includes the Laughing Gull... (Note the Blacks that are still almost in complete breeding plumage!)
Four of the 50 or so Black Terns hanging around...
Non-breeding plumage (or nearly so)
A couple more examples...
Saucy Beauty, one of our more spectacular moths!
