Northern Jacana

Choke Canyon State Park has had a Northern Jacana for quite a while now - Matt had seen one in the Rio Grande Valley, but it'd be new for me. So, Northern Wheatear seen, we headed over to Choke Canyon.

So as not to disappoint anyone with the title:

The teetering "feel" of the bird was very similar to a Spotted Sandpiper - long legs tended to amplify small foraging movements.

I feel the urge to insert text between photo and thumbs, so here 'tis.

Here's a bit of habitat, and our dear friend Steve.
