This was my first time seeing Roseate Spoonbill chicks and I must say those little spoonbill beaks are quite cute. Those few sticks between me and them were a disappointment, but to be this close to a nest was pretty amazing.
Having a look around.
Testing out the gear.

The chicks are so incredibly cute!
I thought so, too, and those beaks!
Yes, I’m very taken with their cute little beaks that’ll end up growing so much bigger!
I had hoped to see some that were a bit older to see how their beaks grow, but we only saw these very young ones and some that were nearly adult size. They grow fast!
lol a face only a mother could love 😉
Great photos of Roseate Spoonbill chicks. Congratulations!
Love that last adorable shot!!
Saved the best for last that time! The second adult came with food just after that to the other side of the nest where I didn’t have a clear view but it sure was exciting to see.
How cute are those, I was just commenting on Ted’s photos, the close ups are amazing and then to have a board walk go right through the rookery. I would be there all day 🙂
The place is kind of an overload, Sandra, cuteness and beauty everywhere you look. It is hard to leave as the action is nonstop… just one more!
I bet, I would have to find a spot to just pull up a chair and enjoy the nature show.
