These Roseate Spoonbill chicks were about to get fed, and they were ready!
There were at least three chicks, the two in the middle and check out the lower left corner:
The way the adult facing away from us kept poking down below her mate I wondered if there was a fourth chick out of my view.

Stunning photographs that tell a beautiful story. The roseate spoonbill is a favorite of mine.
Thank you, so glad you liked these little fellows. It was a real treat to get to see them at this size, amazing how their bills are so tiny but in that shape.
You had a realy good view on the nesting site !
I was fortunate to be passing by when the chicks were getting fed and they started moving around. Ten minutes earlier and I might not even have noticed them.
Thank you, Donna!
