Birds Seen for the First Time

Here are some photographs of new birds for my list so far this year. They have been shot exclusively in Texas and Southern Arizona. There are many beautiful areas and wildlife preserves down here and it is my delight to make the most of them when I can.

Black-throated Sparrow (Amphispiza bilineata)

These images were shot in the following locations:

  • Laguna Atascosa NWR, TX
  • Edinburg Scenic Wetlands, TX
  • Quinta Mazatlan, McAllen, TX
  • Patagonia Lake State Park, AZ


Nikon D4s, GP-1, Nikkor 600.0mm f/4 VR II, Nikkor TC-17 EII, RRS L-plate for D4s, RRS TVC-34L Tripod with Full Gimbal Head, Lexar Digital Film

    Wow!! It looks like you have really been busy taking lots of photos.
    I hope the weather has held up and been great! That is not so much the case for us. We are heading out again next Friday for another cruise which means more chances for me to take new photos…….hope all is well. Hugs Libby
