Most of this post is about and for BIRDERS... Galveston is one of the top places for birding in the United States. Many birders come to Galveston looking for the Reddish Egret, which is only found in a few places.... There are many online sites talking about birding in Galveston. I marked three for you: HERE and HERE and HERE.
I love my backyard birds but truly don't know much about shore birds. I do know that my eldest son --who lives in the Galveston area--- has become a real birder and knows alot about the birds in his area. We were only there for a few hours, but I got to see several 'new to me' birds.... Since my pictures are not too good in spots (too far away plus having to crop them), I am enclosing some other pictures from the internet also --so that you can see how gorgeous these birds really are.
Here's another photo (from the internet) of the Long-billed Curlew. Beautiful birds, aren't they?
AND, here's another one from the internet showing the female and a male Frigate Bird (which has a red neck) ----'blowing' himself up to get the female's attention!!!!! Wonder if he will POP?????? ha ha
IF you want more information about any of these special birds, there are quite a few sites on the internet. One I chose for you today is All About Birds. Click HERE for any info you are looking for when checking out birds.
More Info: Do you see the crown above the word TELEPHONE????? That means that this was a British Telephone Booth.... Bet my British Blog Friends will know something about this booth....
Finally here are two cute shots of George and me ---while visiting a HALLOWEEN Shop on the Strand....
Hope you have a wonderful day. We are in for some cold weather on Saturday --with a low of 26 degrees F and a high of 42 degrees. We also 'might' have some snow showers.... Wooooo--welcome to winter... (Think I wanted to enjoy Fall a little more--although I do LOVE snow!!! ha)
