Peveto pics 4/16/2011

A juvenlie Black-Crowned Night Heron appeared to be in a hypnotic trance perched on a limb overlooking the edge of the water as the sun slowly eased above the horizon at Sabine Refuge.

At Peveto Sanctuary Robby Bacon and I scoured the woodlot searching for birds. The cute, little Hooded Warblers were abundant. 

What do Hooded Warblers eat? This Hooded Warbler spotted a damselfly perched on a limb and snatched it up with blazing speed before it flew. He appeared to be showing off his catch to us as we looked on.

This was my favorite picture of the day. The little Hooded Warbler shook the damselfly vigorously, flipped it up, grabbed it by the head with his beak and down the hatch it went. I was sorry that I missed the next picture.

It was a treat seeing this Canada Warbler as it hopped from limb to limb in the lower canopy.

The Blue-Winged Warbler with its yellow head and thin black eye line is one of my favorite warblers. We saw many more birds but they weren't always in a place to capture a picture

This Red-Tailed Hawk was perched on a snag off of Hwy 82 close to Peveto about a week earlier. It is incredible how these hawks have such different looks.
