The Roseate Spoonbill and the Tricolored Heron

The Roseate Spoonbill and the Tricolored Heron

Rockport, Texas is a haven for hardcore fishermen and fisherwomen. It’s also a haven for two types of tourists seeking those warmer winter months. The first is the nature enthusiasts, the bird watcher, known as Snowbirds. The second  “Winter Texan” of sorts, would be the majestic Whooping Crane. Brought back from extinction, the Whooping Cranes are the largest birds in America that migrate to Rockport from Canada in October and leave in the spring. Rockport is not only a home to these magnificent creatures it is a sanctuary to many splendid species of birds. I am so fortunate to be able to see the wildlife all around me, in this amazing little diamond in the rough on the Texas Gulf Coast.

Fulton Beach Road is a beautiful little  scenic road  that runs all the way to downtown Rockport and it literally hugs Aransas Bay, I live off of of this beautiful scenic route, and for three weeks now I have driven by Old Cottage Beach, which is right down the road, maybe one minute from my house, and happens to be home to a Roseate Spoonbill and a Tricolored Heron. I finally decided to grab my camera and get down there to take some shots of these amazing and fascinating creatures. I took many pictures but this is the picture I submitted to WWN Rockport. Low and behold it was published,  I was so surprised , and of course really excited. I will post some more pictures of the amazing birds I get to see all year round here in Rockport, right in the lagoons across from my house.
