Spoonbill Waiting, Ding Darling NWR

Spoonbill Waiting, Ding Darling NWR
Well,it has snowed in Florida again. Parts of the pan handle from west to east received some of the white stuff. I have only been getting rain…not hard rain but all day long yesterday and probably all day today as a result of this past Polar Arctic cold mass heading south.

So what do you do when this happens, well you dip into the ole archives…and there are thousands to choose from. If I could throw a dart at my hard drives to make choices I would.

Soon it will be the birding season in a couple of months on the west coast and that means adult birds with breeding colors will abound. So today it is one of I think the most colorful birds we have here…The Roseate Spoonbill.

Fabulous shot. I've seen these in the wild only twice in the Houston area and they are amazing.

Superb, the bill is amazing, showing how Nature adapts to environment.

Another dip in the Archives wouldn't come amiss, JM..!
