"Sufficient unto the day is one baby. As long as you are in your right mind, don't ever pray for twins. Twins amount to a permanent riot. And there ain't any real difference between triplets and the insurrection."
~Mark Twain, 1879

Birds and things

Boardwalk over the Laguna Madre Bay.
 Big Hare and tiny Spotted Ground Squirrel

I'm not sure what these are. The Mommy is the brown one and she had a set of fluffy black triplets.

Tri-color Heron.
He was rounding up fish and then grabbing them.

Black Necked Stilt. Related to our Sandpipers.

Red Winged Blackbird-the kids thought it had an injury.

Fresh Water Turtle.
 All types of birds together. There is a Roseate Spoonbill in the middle. That's Wyland Whaling Wall #53 in the background.
We saw Ally the American Alligator. She/He was under one of the birding platforms so I couldn't get my own picture.
