Hazel Bazemore Park

The frost covered grass glistened in the early morning sunlight entering Hazel Bazemore Park near Corpus Christi, TX. This freezing, ice cold weather was totally unexpected.

A vivid red colored bird moved in a distant hedgerow. Hopefully this was the bird that I had longed to find, see and photograph. Up went the binoculars and B-I-N-G-O, it was him, a brilliant red adult male Vermilion Flycatcher!

He would perch on a limb, fly out, snatch a bug in mid-air, and return to the same limb. A clear field lay between me and the bird with no chance to get close for a picture. After patiently waiting and watching he changed locations getting close enough for a distant picture. What an incredible start for the day. It was a great feeling to see and to photograph this gorgeous bird!
