Well…I can’t believe another year has passed and most excitingly, in wildlife world, we still have some Roseate Spoonbills hanging around the marsh.
It’s been 10 years since the spoonies have regularly started visiting the area, and in all that time they have never stayed later than a day or two into December, and now we have a surprising New Year’s Day appearance!
Now we are wondering if some will think about staying through the winter rather heading south as they normally have in the past.
In any case, we are thrilled they seem to be happy with their January home at least for now.
Also had to include one of the ‘regulars’ a great blue heron, that remains a constant source of beauty and amusement.
Happy New Year everyone!
