Smith Oaks Bird Sanctuary

On May 20, 2007, Mark and I spent the afternoon at the Smith Oaks Bird Sanctuary in High Island, Texas. The day was a typical hot Texas summer day.

Below are some photos I took during the trip. I plan to go back during the birds' migration season to take more visual shots.
