Couple of shots of the flooding in my area. The Cibolo creek at FM 2252 and the Cibolo at Evans Rd. just west of IH 35. The last photo is of a couple of Woodies up by Comal Springs. Looks like mama might have been fooling around with someone of a different species maybe. The normal coloration is shown in the top bird.

Very neat looking birds and that's a lot of water for sure.

Maybe a little Blue Wing in the wood pile?

Looks like his wing isn't tucked into the side pocket all the way.

IMO it looks like a Mallard is the poacher in the wood pile on that bottom bird with that blue wing chevron and russet coloring...Great pictures.

Told my sister last nite that she needs to get some pic's of the Blanco around her house, just west of Wimberly and about an 1/8th of mile north of the river. Their house is built on a solid rock slope and the water flow under the pier & beam construction has moved the house just enough to cause the floors to start to buckle. They were busy running an extension cord to a neghbors house 5-600 yards away to power their water well and moving freezers and refrigerators over to the guys house to save all their food.

Water water everywhere...Ya'll need to STOP prayin' for rain in North Texas...we'll be happy to share and send some of Texoma's over supply your way, instead of throwing it away over the Spillway.

X2... you can just see the normal coloration under that part of the wing and to the side.
