Kayaking in Rockport

On Monday, we took the Kayaks out in Copano Bay, launching from Rattlesnake Point Rd in Rockport, TX.  Our path took us past Redfish Lodge and into the smaller inlet north of Cape Valero Rd.

Our first bird of interest was a flock of Fulvous Whistling Ducks resting in the marsh grasses. It was not possible to approach them without their flushing and settling further away. This was a new species for us.

Further in, we found a half dozen White Ibis feeding in the marsh. These were also difficult to approach. I made sure that Vali was in Danielle's boat and she stayed back while I got this one.

From one of the duck blinds in the inlet, I observed a juvenile Neotropic Cormorant resting on a post.

An Osprey was perched a couple of posts over
