July 23, 2015 - Old Port Isabel Road & South Padre Island

 

Very fuzzy Redhead that nonetheless isn't supposed to be here now!

 

Long-billed Curlew

 

Botteri's Sparrow

 

   

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...

 

Marbled Godwit

 

 

Saucy Beauty, one of our more spectacular moths!
