Birding at Brazos Bend State Park

We took a much anticipated trip to Brazos Bend State Park which is our nearest state park.  I love that place!! I do think that Texas has the best state parks!! Daisy (daughter's dog) was with us for the weekend while she was out of town.  We took the trail that winds around the big pond (keeping a sharp eye out for alligators all the while) and enjoyed the beautiful birds. It was a bit colder than we had anticipated and the wind was quite chilly but things warmed up as the day went on. JMM has a new camera and was practicing with it and taking lots of pictures.  I'll post them as soon as he downloads them. 
Here's the day's birds:
Red- winged blackbird
Mourning dove
Black vulture
White ibis
Tri-colored heron
Little blue heron
Black bellied whistling duck
Snowy egret
We were told that there was a vermillion flycatcher in residence but he evaded us.
