2016 Spring Migration Part 1

2016 Spring Migration Part 1

The 2016 spring migration has begun along the Texas coast. Each time I go out to photograph these migrants, I see something new. This is the reason I will be publishing a 2016 Spring Migration Part 2.

All of the bird photographs in Part 1 and Part 2 were taken in Port Aransas, TX at the two most popular birding sites, Joan & Scott Holt Paradise Pond and Leonabelle Turnbull Birding Center.

  1. Mike, each one is more beautiful than the other!!! Thank you for the morning bird show…and I can see them without crawling around in the woods…?

  2. Mike, that Hooded Warbler is so brilliant! Do you stay in one place and let the birds come to you, or do you take their pictures wherever you happen to see them?

  3. Such beautifully colored birds, Michael. Not sure how you capture so many different types. They look just plain magical.
