Roseate Spoonbills are fascinating to watch feed as they sift through the water with their beaks, their bodies in constant motion. There were about 30 Spoonbills scattered through this pond, sometimes together as a big group and then a few would go off on their own, following the food.
Getting a group photo is a challenge as they shift and turn, beaks in and out of the water. These were taken about an hour after daybreak as the sun finally made it up out of the clouds.
