    Default Turkey TX & Birds

    I went to my wife's family reunion in Turkey, Texas, home of Bob Wills, the origional King of Western Swing over the weekend. On the way back I spotted some nesting birds around the only pond I had seen in nearly 200 miles (Need rain in the worst way all over Texas). My wife also spotted a sissortail nesting in a tree at a rest stop out side of Post, TX. Hope you enjoy. C&C always welcome.

    Sissortail, handheld with a Sigms 50-500 & heavily cropped & sharpened.

    Handheld Sigma 50-500 American Avocat, heavely cropped and sharpened.

    Monument at Bob Will's Park, Turkey, Texas w/14/54 OOC.

    Nice shots. I really like the monument.

    My family and I camped at a state park near there years ago. Raccoons got into everything and made a mess like you would not believe.

    Thanks for looking halfwright. We go up quite a bit to visit family. I haven't been to Bob Wills Day in several years but plan to go next year.
