At least there were Red-winged Blackbirds at Pt Isabel

Claude Lyneis

On the Bay Trail just north of Point Isabel, it looked like the shorebirds had left town.  A Whimbrel, a Willet and some Canada Geese were still around.  

It was an opportunity to see and photograph a number of Re-winged Blackbirds where the 51st entrance connects with the Bay Trail.  

They are actually quite beautiful.  A link to a Flickr photo below.,
