Texas 13 - Back East at Smith Oaks Rookery

The last few days were spent back on the Upper Coast based at Galveston. The idea was to try and catch a "fall" at High Island and/or Sabine Woods.

One of the unmissable sights at Smith Oaks (part of the High Island area) is the "Rookery". Not Rooks however but MUCH more colourful birds...Egrets, Herons and Spoonbills...

Roseate Spoonbill

Great Egret

Tricoloured Heron

Snowy Egret

Pink feet and lores during breeding season (usually yellow)
