We took a drive up to the Aransas National Wildlife Refuge today to look for Whooping Cranes. We found a pair out on the Heron Flats trail, a pretty reliable place to see them. While watching, we saw this one wrangle a snake and gulp it down. I am pretty sure that it is a Ribbon Snake.
Earlier in the week we tried the Lamar Beach Rd. location in Rockport. We saw a small group of them but at a distance. One was the juvenile nicknamed "Precious" who was adopted by foster parents when its parents left it.
