A lonely palapa at Rockport Beach this morning. Two blocks from my cottage, the park is slowly rebuilding infrastructure damaged by Hurricane Harvey in late 2017. The birds didn’t seem to mind. Next time I’ll take my big camera. Without a lot of effort I spotted these cool species today: Black Skimmer, American and Brown Pelicans, Great Egret, Cattle Egret, Great Blue Heron, Ruddy Turnstone, Long-billed Curlew, Black Vulture, and even a few Bottlenose Dolphins. Not a bad way to spend an afternoon!
