The Roseate Spoonbills appear just about every morning and evening nowadays, individually and in groups. They are so stunning!Birders and photographers often wait endlessly for them to take off (or at least flap their wings for effect) so we can ‘capture’ a great shot of them in flight. But I think sometimes that they just stand there on purpose 😉
They’re undoubtedly posing, so we can see all their best sides!Occasionally, they find time to fit in a little Yoga practice 😉And, of course, they want to be sure we also get a good look at the special design of their Spoonbill.
If you time it just right, shortly before a glorious pink sunset, you can watch them fly in and hang out on the old snag for awhile before they fly off to roost. Curiously, no one seems to know where our Spoonbills actually roost at night, or where the closest nesting spot is.
