Who Knew Fishing Could Be Such Dirty Work?
It seems that a couple of hours of chasing shrimp and fish around the marsh can get a bird’s feathers all mussed up.
The solution apparently involves a nice vigorous bath. Not only were the spoonies involved in the bathing process, but at one point a White Ibis joined in as well.
I must say it’s a vast improvement, they all looked quite spiffy after bath time was over.
What great shots! I love the spoonbills ❤️
Hi Alison, so glad you liked seeing our goofy pink friends. They sure are fun!
Fantastic captures, Phil. They were having such a fun bath time. 😃
They really did seem to enjoy themselves and it appeared as if the younger birds were learning from the more mature birds. Some things never change. 🙂
Yes, you’re so right. 😃
Always seems to be the case. 🙂
These are fun – and the colours – wow! I love the last one, like a ballerina’s tutu! Looking forward to the email.
The big pink spoonbills are always the most fun and often will even draw a crowd!
Dear Phill they are so beautiful, fascinated me all. Thank you, Love, nia
Thank you so much for looking and commenting Nia, wonderful to see you!
These are great action shots. I enjoyed them very much.
they’re the best fisherman or should I say Fisherbirds.
