I took advantage of two excellent bird watching destinations in Port Aransas, Texas (April 2009). The first was Paradise Pond (lots of migrant song birds) and the second was Port Aransas Birding Center (lots of waders and shore birds). Both were excellent because of diversity and proximity - there were plenty of species to see, and they tended to be close.
Here are two images of Tricolored Heron taken from Port Aransas Birding Center.
Paradise Pond in Port Aransas, Texas continues to be a very memorable place for me. The bird watching and photographic opportunities were both excellent. These three Indigo Buntings were easily framed into a single shot from the boardwalk.
