Baskett Slough Birds, Right Side Up

At my usual stop at the Narrows on Coville Rd. at Baskett Slough Wildlife Refuge, on my way home from picking up horse feed in Dallas, I saw birds that stayed upright this time.  I love Cinnamon Teal.










Johnny was along, so we hiked down the dike road to find the reported Yellow-headed Blackbirds. One kindly popped up for a photograph. Such amazingly handsome birds. With such raucous voices.

There is always something wonderful to see at Baskett Slough. And it's especially wonderful when it poses.
