White-eyed Vireo Day 1-1

Hooks Woods Photographic Survey

This is my  three day photographic survey on the migrating and resident birds of Hooks Woods. The woods are in High Island, TX on the Bolivar Peninsula. I went in mid April and set up near  the newly installed water feature each day. As you will see, each day got progressively busier and busier with active birds. As a photographer, I loved the new water feature but most importantly the birds loved it more. In my time there, I was able to chronicle 20 different species at or near the new feature. It was such a wonderful experience and I wish I had more time to photograph additional birds! 


In these galleries, you will see the following birds: Blue-winged Warbler, Worm-eating  Warbler, Swainson's Thrush, Common Yellowthroat Warbler, Yellow-breasted Chat, Tennessee Warbler, Summer Tanager, Rose-breasted Grosbeak, Orchard Oriole, Gray Catbird, Kentucky Warbler, Hooded Warbler, Chestnut Sided Warbler, Painted Bunting, Indigo Bunting, White-eyed Vireo, Carolina Wren, Black-chinned Hummingbird, Black-and-white Warbler and Northern Cardinal.
