Mosaic Monday

Whoa. Took me quite a while to figure out how in the world to make a mosaic (I'm not to technically savvy, you see), but I did it. Go me! I decided to throw in some of my favorite Texas birds from last season - Scissor-tailed Flycatcher, Black-capped Vireo, Golden-cheeked Warbler fledgie and adult, and a Green Jay.

I've been researching the GCWAs for three years and miss the little guys already! They are adorable and I got pretty attached to them and their crazy little personalities (that's right, I just said they had personalities). I love running after the fledglings and watching them learn how to forage on their own.

I did some work with the Black-capped Vireos too...I tried all season to get a good photo of them - they are insanely hyperactive and they really like to make you crawl through some thick vegetation to find them! The GCWA and BCVI photos are from Hill Country/Real County.

The Green Jay is from a trip to south Texas. Beautiful birds. That was the first time I had seen them, I was pretty excited. And the Scissor-tailed is from Real County also...always a handsome and charismatic bird.
