Group Portrait

I mentioned previously how excited we were that our favorite pink visitors, the roseate spoonbills, arrived in our area this week. At first only one showed up, followed by a second one two days later, and then last night three more came making the total five. We found the group out in the salt marsh this afternoon and I thought I would post up a quick group shot for you all to check out. Everyone here is thrilled! 

Spoonbill Group

    • It all started in 2009 when a group of 11 arrived and stayed all summer into the fall. Since then we have had some show up traditionally in late June or early July. So these spoonies are maybe a little early but that’s OK. 🙂

  1. They are a very handsome group, Phil. They really add some glamour to the salt marsh. Love the different shades of pink. I hope they stay for a while so you can get more pics. 🙂

    • They are quite the snazzy group for sure Sylvia. The two adults in the background look like doting parents to the juveniles in the front. As they age the color and brightness of their feathers change as well as their eye color!
      I got flight shots coming up soon, so stay tuned! 🙂
