Every day we don’t see any spoonbills out in the marsh we wonder if they have finally left the area for the season. Last year they departed early and I never saw one spoonie past Sept. 1st. We have been very fortunate this summer that some were around fairly reliably all through Sept. and even Oct. But the question remained… would any stick around into November.
We were thrilled last night to find that question answered when first two, then a third spoonie showed up in the salt marsh during low tide! So we can officially say we had spoonbills into November.
Here are a few shots of them as they went about their routine much to the delight of all who saw them!
