When they make their chip, chip sound they can fool me into thinking I hear a hummingbird as they are very similar.

@brownrexx Roseate Spoonbils are common birds here along the coast. It would be strange not to see them when I’m out in the marsh in my kayak. People tend to confuse them with flamingoes. Flamingoes are not native to Texas.

The birdlife is certainly an attraction while kayaking.

Just one bird pic from October - it is "the other woodpecker" with black back and red head, I didn't get a better shot than this so still a mystery, what kind it is. The usual woodpecker aka Flicker is often around the garden and lately being chased off for pecking at my eave. This other woodpecker is less commonly around. The sound of them in the woods is eerie.. first time I heard it I thought someone was quietly hammering nails and building something in the wooooods. :lol: :roll: Went to look and found.. a bird.

This morning in a neighbor's driveway this black vulture struck the "horaltic pose." Also this morning a gaggle of white geese showed their displeasure at my presence by honking loudly as they crossed the road.

The geese look as if they are dancing across the road.
