I saw the Spoonbills flying from a distance and then land. I tracked them to a favorite feeding spot where I have seen them before.

This photo looks like an adult female mother (brighter plumage) with immature Spoonbills surrounding her, whom do not develop their full bright color until two years of age.

I have never seen so many Roseates at once. It was late in the morning too, and the sun was at its fullest Floridan summer strength.

    Amazing! I can’t believe how many there are and how pink they are.
    Really need to get out again.
    See you soon.
