TBT- Brown Pelican at Texas City Dike

As noted previous my blog has been restored without content and I am publishing old posts form the past.
I will frequently visit Texas City Dike, it is about 7 miles from the house and it does have a fair number of birds to watch and even photograph. I like how this Brown Pelican is perched on the rusty metal near one of the many boat launches at the dike.

Ring-billed Duck

This is another one of the ducks that we spent time watching and photographing. Now you may not be able to see the ring on its neck, as I understand, you can only see the ring when the duck is in your hand. I did hear a rumor that a name change may be coming for this duck and it may be Ring-billed Duck. Now that is a name that makes sense to me.
