Hooded Oriole (Icterus cucullatus)

Apparently I haven’t put any bird photos up here in a while, what’s that all about? Unacceptable! So to alleviate that issue, here’s some Texas birds for you.

Bewick’s Wren (Thryomanes bewickii)

Hooded Oriole (Icterus cucullatus) who sat still for about 5 minutes and a Bewick’s Wren (Thryomanes bewickii) sitting in perfect evening light. Thanks, guys.

Ash-throated Flycatcher (Myiarchus cinerascens)

Ash-throated Flycatcher (Myiarchus cinerascens). If you look closely you can see he or she’s got some grub in the mouth for nestlings in a nearby cavity.

Pyrrhuloxia (Cardinalis sinuatus)

Pyrrhuloxia (Cardinalis sinuatus) imitating a T-rex or some sort of dinosaur. It was a really foggy ‘meh’ kinda day and the light was pretty ridiculously bad, but this pose is awesome. I always get excited to see them in the Hill Country since they aren’t overly common around where I usually dwell. They dig the scrubby desert scene (as do I) so it’s kinda fun to see them every now and then.

Summer Tanager (Piranga ruba)

Summer Tanager (Piranga ruba) striking a pose.

They’ve got a real pretty song and an even cooler call.

Red-eyed Vireo (Vireo Olivaceus)

Red-eyed Vireo (Vireo Olivaceus) pulling the legs off an unfortunate grasshopper.

I probably messed my neck up taking this photo, as he was directly above me and that’snot the most comfortable position with a heavy 500mm lens.

Ah well, made for a fun shot.

Horde of Cliff Swallows (Petrochelidon pyrrhonta)

Below him are a horde of Cliff Swallows (Petrochelidon pyrrhonta) just saying hey.
