This Is What We Are Waiting For
When spoonbills arrive in the marsh they often join a group of wood storks which could also include an assortment of egrets and herons.
These shots from two weeks ago are what we are hoping to see any day now. After our five pink visitors left the area back in late August we have been eagerly awaiting their return and hope to see some pink fly ins soon.
We miss our big goofy pink friends. 🙂
A wood stork has turned up on Grand Bahama, a very rare occurrence indeed. A friend had flown over there from Abaco (where they are unrecorded) to check it out. Devotion! He’d see a great many more if he made the trip to Fl.!
I can remember here when seeing one wood stork was a huge big deal and they were on the endangered list. Now we have them coming out of our ears all summer. 🙂
They are so much the life of the party; I’m looking forward to some great photos.
You just gotta love those pink birds and I’m still on more to arrive. May not happen though… 😦
They make quite a splash around all that white!
They do standout nicely against the storks, but then again they look good everywhere. 🙂
What an entrance.
I know, these birds have style!
They have you just where they want you:)
You’re not kidding! When I’m out there some days everything looks pink because I’m willing them to arrive. So far my psychological tactics have been unsuccessful though.
here’s hoping they return!
We are all hoping some more show up. We may have to rent some if this keeps up. 😀
