365.25 - Day 16

365.25 - Day 16

Indian Point Park is just off of Highway 181 as you leave Portland heading west to Corpus Christi. Over 36 bird species reside here at various times during the year.

I'm not sure about the identity of this wading bird, but I loved the long, multi-colored beak. It smoothly and slowly made its way through the water, more or less oblivious to my presence. I made this photo from the front seat of my car while returning home from a meeting in Corpus Christi.

It's now day 16 of the project, but day five is when the birds first came forth:

"And God said, 'Let the waters bring forth swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the dome of the sky.' So God created the great sea monsters and every living creature that moves, of every kind, with which the waters swarm, and every winged bird of every kind. And God saw that it was good. God blessed them, saying, 'Be fruitful and multiply and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.' And there was evening and there was morning, the fifth day." (Gen 1:20-23 NRSV)

  1. It's so fun to keep checking everyday to see what you've come up with, Chris! You're a gifted photographer and a gifted thinker about God's relationship with His creation.
