After Hours

After Hours



Still pulling these out from my Anahuac cache from a couple months ago…I’ve got nothing to report right now, so stare instead at the birds, will you please? And while you do that, listen to this sweet tune from Caribou, one of my favorites. It’s called Pelican Narrows, how appropriate.

American birds migrate south to Peru and Argentina for the winter to escape the cold weather.
Now protected in the USA by law, under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, this bird’s population has rebounded.
The Tricolored Heron (Egretta tricolor) is a resident breeder from the Gulf states of the USA and northern Mexico south through Central America and the Caribbean to central Brazil and Peru.
The Royal Tern typically feeds in small secluded bodies of water such as estuaries, mangroves, and lagoons.
The Brown Pelican (Pelecanus occidentalis) is the smallest of the eight species of pelican, although it is a large bird in any case.
