We hadn’t seen any Roseate Spoonbills in weeks and suspected they had migrated south. What a delightful surprise to see a flock of about thirty when we visited the the Tom Yawkey Wildlife Center on November 30th. This spot is slightly north of where we usually see the Spoonbills.
Our viewing spot wasn’t that great and this property limits the number of visitors so the birds have little or no acclimation to humans.
Still, it was Spoonbills. There were some Woodstorks in the same group but they flew off in the other direction.
The Spoonbills did give a short show looping around while they decided on their destination.
