Roseate Spoonbills

Sunrise on Roseate Spoonbills

The first morning sun highlighted the pink in these handsome birds. The Roseate Spoonbills often stand in a straight line like this when they are in small groups, sometimes with one outlier.

They either weren’t hungry or there wasn’t much to eat because they got involved with personal grooming and looking around.

An Eagle flew over and that might have distracted them.

There was still some fog in the air as a few of them lifted off and they disappeared into the mist.

    1. Thanks! According to the birding resources they aren’t supposed to be here at all but it seems their range is expanding. Last winter we saw them into January, then they left for a few months. I’m not sure just when they came back as I wasn’t looking for them. After all we’ve seen them this fall I’ll be paying more attention.

  1. Through the photos that you and Ted take, I’ve been introduced to the roseate spoonbills and they’ve become such a favourite of mine… I never get tired of seeing them! Thank you so much!

    1. Liz, Ted and I are so glad to know that you are enjoying the Spoonbills. Their prehistoric look and color really make them fun and are a favorite of mine, too. You’ll be seeing more of them from me,
