You Know Him…You Love Him…You Miss Him…

I thought at this time of year, it might be nice to revisit our favorite grumpy pink bird from this past summer. In these never before seen photos from a warm morning in August, we have the salt marsh resident spoonbill starting right off giving us his best “I’m so cute” look.

As he continues his patrol among the oyster beds he stops to snatch up a tiny glass shrimp while an ibis nabs himself a small crab. A great blue heron casts a wary eye on our pink friend until finally it’s time for spoonie to leave and continue on with his day.

I hope you enjoyed this look back at some summer moments from the salt marsh!

  1. No matter how many times I see that pink coloration, I never cease to be amazed by it. Indeed I missed him, but Mr A., the eagle, and other colorful characters of the marsh help to fill that void.

  2. Thank you so much for the beautiful photos thru the year. I really enjoy them!

    Merry Christmas and happy, healthy new year!
