    They're beautiful, rdking647. Thank you for sharing your gift of taking exquisite bird pics. I've seen both of those kinds of birds in my front yard here in Walker County, TX. We have a passel of three different type of tanagers--summer, scarlet, and that other kind (I forget the name). Some days I look out and see a dozen cardinals at one time. In the cooler weather prior to our terrible drought here, we had a great white egret on a daily basis. I think he may have hopped a trade wind over to Lake Livingston when it got so dry here our small backyard manmade lake shrunk from over 2.5 acres to a little less than 2, and it's still shrinking. On a positive note, I hear a lot of wetlands/bird chatter out there in the dark right now.
