Spoonbills And Wood Storks
This morning we had a couple of spoonbills feeding in the salt marsh with a group of wood storks. Everyone got along just fine for the most part until it seemed as if one wood stork developed a bit of an attitude.
The spoonbills seemed quite perplexed about what exactly was going on, so they decided to vacate the premises.
Soon they were high tailing it across the marsh, flying off to go join their pink buddies at the far back edge of the pond.
Oh that one wood stork — asserting himself! Great shots, and I love those spoon bills. 🙂
Those storks have a lotta nerve picking on the poor little spoonbills We are hoping the pink guys stick around! 🙂
Absolutely beautiful! Are you in Murrells Inlet?
Thanks very much for looking and commenting I appreciate it! Also glad you liked seeing the spoonies.
Yup, I’m in MI.
I was at one of the turtle inventories last year at Huntington that you shot. You have an amazing eye!!!
Were you at the inventory last summer where they found around 30 live little ones?!? That was amazing. 🙂
I sure was. It was truly magical!!!
An unforgettable experience for sure!
What a rude Wood Stork! he needs Mr. A to give him a telling off. That should sort him out. 🙂
It was funny, Mr A was out this morning patrolling his usual area and all the birds stayed away from him. I wonder if they sensed he was in a crabby mood.
He should have floated over and gave the storks a good talking to,
Great shots and story. Very entertaining
Well I’m very happy you enjoyed reading the little story and seeing the pics, thanks.
The wood stork doesn’t seem happy about the spoonies being there.
It’s funny too because the spoonies almost always hang around with the wood storks but I guess they can’t always get along.
It’s easy to be threatening when someone is half your size! Bully!
Even I tend to forget how large those storks are.
It’s funny how many of the storks we have around here now. Alyce and I can be driving to the grocery store and it is not uncommon to spot a couple of storks flying above us.
