You can easily tell who’s who by the differences in the colors of their heads, necks, bills, and the intensity of their pink plumage.7398660A-FB08-4821-8AB4-7744E2ECDFB4_1_201_aThey always make quite a showing at the Space Coast Birding Festival💕. E26C08D2-D5BD-45C9-A4D0-B9612FAE0BD0_1_201_aThese lovelies were all seen on Black Point Wildlife Drive at Merritt Island NWR.

    • Thank you, Sue! I couldn’t help but think he was sending a message in that morning light. 💕 Perfect time to get a good shot of these stunning birds – and they’re so abundant, there was lots of opportunity for close-ups.


      • OMGosh, I photographed Rosies in flight this morning!!! 💃💃💃 I got a tip that about 50 spoonbills were about 15 mins from me and off I went! I found them, they were about 100+ feet from the road. After shooting 10 mins, I got out of sight as they were at the end of the waters they were foraging and started turning back around which would parade them back by me. If I hadn’t seen the PINK through the bushes I was behind, I’d have missed them! But I didn’t, hallelujah!! It was glorious to see all that pink in the blue sky flying by. Post forthcoming in few days! 🙂
