Well THAT Had To Hurt!!
Yesterday evening we had a good size group of spoonbills show up. We counted 14 of them which was the most we ever saw together all in one location at the same time.
When you get that amount of almost any of the large waders together you have to figure it’s only a matter of time before an argument breaks out. When it became apparent these two spoonies were going to have a disagreement I was not surprised. However I was surprised when one grabbed the other by the head and shoved it down into the water almost as if it was trying to drown the poor pink spoonbill!
The fight broke up almost as quickly as it started and they both went right back to the business of feeding, but the instigator did seem to be rather proud and happy that he successfully got his point across!
