Day 16: Windier Than Hell

The winds were estimated to be gusting to 237.531 mph, and that's probably on the low end. We went over to Estero Llano anyway. Most of the birds were laying low - no small birds. If they were airborne, they are in Kansas now. We found a little pond that was sheltered where we found a Solitary Sandpiper (only one) and what I took to be a mother White Ibis with five immatures. What's the plural of Ibis? Ibis? Ibises? Ibi? We saw a young Ibis, no wait, there were five! 


An unidentified woman taking a picture of a world famous bird photographer. Seriously, I haven't a clue what that was all about.

You're lucky she didn't want to have a beer with you.

Easy plural: white birds.
