Dennis McElveen's Big Bend: Birding

Our guest photographer, Dennis McElveen, says this about encountering the Mexican Jay on his recent trip to Big Bend National Park:

The jay hopped along the trail literally just in front of us like he was hiking up the trail with us. When we would stop he would stop turn and chatter at us, like 'what's the hold up'.

Big Bend National Park has several birding and wildlife watching sites included on the Far West Texas Wildlife Trail, a joint project of the Texas Mountain Trail and Texas Parks and Wildlife.  Here’s a link to the BigBend Loop of that Trail. 

We thank Dennis McElveen for sharing his wonderful images this week.  Interested in seeing more of Dennis’ work?  Contact him at damfoto (at) sbcglobal (dot) net
