Roseate Spoonbills

1 post in this topic

Same location as my osprey pictures - Tigertail Lagoon, Marco Island, August 2014.

Most mornings there were between 15 and 20 Roseate Spoonbills feeding, preening or sleeping on or near the lagoon - this is a selection of pictures from a morning when the birds were on 'my' side of the lagoon, though to get the light at my back, I did have to wade into the lagoon and stand up to my knees in water at the mersy of the mozzies!

Juvenile bird posing nicely:
