Bird Blinds

The best birding on a very cold morning could happen in bird blinds where you’re sheltered from the chilly weather and get a great view of the birds. That’s exactly what happened when we went to the bird blinds at Pedernales Falls State Park. We saw a lot of species just by staying there for a few hours. Hubby and I usually refer to it as “bird TV”.  Of course we walked on a couple of trails but there were just a few birds who braved the cold weather while we were out. We did have a good exercise going up the hill on our way back to the parking area.

  1. I do love those woodpeckers – there is something great about being tucked up in a hide (as we call ‘blinds’) – especially if the weather is poor and the birding good!

  2. You got some amazing photos! I could handle blind birding, because my hubby and I don’t hike anymore. We do most of our bird watching from our front porch or car window, but occasionally I will get out and walk a short distance. Hubby has to wait while I do.

  3. Oh, my! This park is not too far from me – planning a visit! I had no idea we had the Spotted Towhee – a favorite. Must go watch some TV, lol! Thanks for sharing, Shey!

Thanks for coming by today and for your kind words. I will visit you as soon as I can. Have a fantastic day and don't forget to smile. ~ Shey
