The Roseate Spoonbill Project

I turned to the open water that revealed hundreds of egrets, herons and Roseate Spoonbills, perched, sitting on nests, flying in, flying out, stretching their wings, squabbling over space on a branch, preening, snoozing, or just looking pretty. 

When momma calls it’s time for some crawdads

When the adult was nowhere in sight I heard its hen-like kek-kek-kek. She was calling her chicks who popped their heads up to see where she was.

There’s a lot going on

The trees were dripping with egrets and roseate spoonbills and though a soggy day, it meant very few birders were at the rookery.
