My friend, fellow blogger and RVer, MonaLiza just wrote a great post with some gorgeous photos that I just had to share. Hope you enjoy her post as much as I did.
Is this mockingbird unhappy to see us?
Two deep-south states – Texas and Florida – are known for their amazing assemblage of birds and other animals. The “Sister States in Birds”, as they are sometimes called, share many of the same birds – even going so far as to both claim the Northern Mockingbird as their state bird.
Texas gets more western birds, while Florida hosts some Carribbean species and Atlantic sea birds. Both states have extensive birding trails throughout the state, and I’ve seen many birds here that were also present in Florida. But those are just some birding facts; today I’m writing about “human” sisters in birds, Ingrid and I.
This guy made sure we kept our distance from the water!
I can probably be most accurately labeled as a “wanna-be birder”, who just loves to photograph them. When two lady bloggers share the same interests they instantly become sisters – in this case…

Ingrid, I haven’t been receiving your posts in my reader forever. I’m going to unfollow and follow you again…I’ve had to do this with quite a few other bloggers I follow. I’m not sure it’s working, though!
That too has happened to me. I’ve gone through my reader in the edit section to make sure I have the settings correct. Still can’t figure out what happens sometimes. Thanks 🙂
What a terrific photo of the gator. The best I’ve ever seen.
So much fun! You two are definitely sisters in spirit! (I still wish I could have been there with you.) Are you going to Mission to meet up with ML and Steve? We had a fabulous time birding there a few years ago. Surely the weather will be warmer there since it’s almost in Mexico! 🙂
No, we won’t be heading to Mission. February will find us meandering around southern AZ doing some boondocking. March we’ll be back in Phoenix. We hope to run into ML and Steve again in CO but it’s looking like we’ll just miss each other. Oh well, it’s just a matter of time and we’ll ALL bump into each other 🙂
Stunning lead photo!
Mona did manage to capture some great shots during her stay in the area. Now I need to go shoot me some birds….. figuratively not literally 😉

Thank you Ingrid for featuring our escapades in your blog, that is just sweet and lovely! When you are done with your dates with the Whooping Cranes point your rig to Mission, TX for more exotic birds.
Likewise. However will we top this birding adventure? Elk? Moose? Pika? Hmm, we’ll need to think on that 🙂
Thank you 🙂
