It Was A Nice Quiet Crowd Out There Until…
We had a big crowd of spoonbills and wood storks out this evening and at one point many of them ended up congregating in a near corner of the salt marsh.
Everyone was calm and quiet as the evening feeding was mostly concluded and they were all just standing around socializing and relaxing.
Until… something spooked them and the entire group decided all at once that they had to leave and it had to be right now!
Suddenly the whole bunch of them exploded in a flash of pink and white and they all took off out across the pond area heading for the trees. This capped off an amazing evening when we had 14 spoonbills (and Radar) all fishing in the salt marsh at the same time. It’s a new record!
