“Headed to Texas”
Each fall many North American Birds leave their summer nesting grounds and fill the sky headed to Texas and the tropics for the winter. Some of these feathered friends travel great distances, for example, the Ruddy Turnstone migrates from Alaska and islands inside the Arctic Circle to the sub tropics, stopping in Texas for rest and recuperation. The famous Whooping Crane comes from Woods Buffalo Hole in Canada to the Aransas National Wildlife Refuge near Rockport, Texas.
These ten photographs are examples of some of the thousands of birds that migrate each year.
