Cornell University recently approached me to use one of my White-tailed Hawk photos for their species info page on their Birds of North America website. Pretty cool as it’s probably one of the biggest publication credits I’ve received to date.

I just returned from a weekend of photographing along the Upper Texas coast with friends from Houston. Saturday morning we chartered a boat to take us out to a chain of islands where wintering Whooping Cranes could be found. We were very fortunate to find at least 8 Whooping Cranes including one juvenile bird. There are fewer than 250 pairs of Whooping Cranes left in the wild due to habitat loss but rehabilitation efforts are having great success and numbers are quickly rebounding. Most of the Whooping Crane population winters along the Texas coast while a smaller population also winters in Florida.
Spent the rest of the weekend trying to work on other Texas specialties, such as Nine-banded Armadillo, White-tailed Hawk, Mottled Duck, Tropical Parula, Neotropic Cormorant and others. Lots of photos follow:
