The Roseate Spoonbills are still in South Carolina despite all the  bird guides indicating they either shouldn’t be here at all or at least should have decamped to warmer Florida.

Another awkward looking bird, the Roseate Spoonbills are remarkable agile while seeking food and in the air. I was amazed at the flying skills, although the banking and dropping maneuvers didn’t seem to have a purpose as he wasn’t being pursued and they don’t catch bugs in the air.

Against an all blue sky the spoonbills are a pink stand out, if somewhat boring picture.
