Springbrook Nature Center

I stopped by Springbrook Nature Center today after work and saw a fair amount of birds: Brown Thrashers, White-throated Sparrows, Yellow-rumped Warblers, Palm Warblers, and Rose-breasted Grosbeaks as well as a number of other birds. I'll post some more of the shots from this evening over the next couple of days. The Brown Thrasher is a very cool bird but is quite difficult to photograph because it generally stays near the ground in the under brush. He popped up for a bit and I snapped off this shot.

These Mourning Doves looked really good in the sun and I certainly can't pass up a shot like that now can I?
