Port Mansfield - Part 2

Any idea who this fabulous hairdo belongs to?

Here are some more photos from Port Mansfield:

White Ibis

Snowy Egret and Tricolored Heron

Lesser Scaup

Double-crested Cormorant

American Avocet

Black-necked Stilts

After Port Mansfield we headed down to Fred Stone County Park and Pier. It’s about five minutes from Port Mansfield.

The Texas Coastal Birding Trail has this to say:

“The algal flats south of this cut host the world’s largest wintering population of Piping Plovers.”

Hummm ... I think they need to update the Birding Trail. We didn’t see any Piping Plovers. There is a very nice fishing pier where we were able to see, up close and personal, lots of Brown Pelicans.

By the way, the Brown Pelican was also the proud owner of the fancy hairdo!
