I took a quick 2-day visit to the Texas coast last weekend to get in a little birding during migration.

The Purple Gallinule shown below is not a typical backyard bird but I did find a nesting pair in Irving a few years ago.

While not primarily a photography trip, here are a few images I managed to snag. All of these birds are passing through North Texas and could be in your backyard.

Wow-great pics, beautiful birds.

Had an unusual thing happen. Have a shed/cabin at our acreage & a beautiful 'apartment' bird house inside on a table that we have not gotten around to putting in a tree. (20 ac & can't find a suitable one :cry: )


Last weekend we noticed small greyish birds w/long beaks going into the shed at the top of the walls where the roof meets. Sure enuf, babies in a nest in the birdhouse.

Figured they wouldn't be able to get outside once they were fledglings so we carried the table & house out onto the porch.

Mom & Pop didn't seem to mind & kept feeding so guess this arrangment will work.
