Willets are another common bird we see in the mudflats around Rockport. They slowly walk around poking and probing for something to eat. The morning of this photo was memorable because of the lack of wind. Being on the coast, it’s windy most days here, but so far it hasn’t been as bad as Oklahoma (windiest place on earth?).
This photograph was taken earlier this month at North Cove Harbor Wetlands Sanctuary, Rockport, Texas. (Nikon Z5, 1/320 sec at f/5.6, ISO 100, 400mm, cropped)
