Big And Pink, Roseate Spoonbills

One of the most unusual and striking birds here in the lowcountry is the Spoonbill. Like the Wood Stork this year has seen larger flocks.

A bonus is that they also are a little more comfortable when they see us. You cannot just walk up to them, however as you see in these photographs the birds watch us but continue feeding.

I hope the numbers keep growing since this is one of the great birds to photograph here.

    1. I wanted to shoot them for years. In the past I never got close when on photo trips (lived in Connecticut). Now living in the semi-tropics, and with their rebounding numbers, I can get close if out in the more remote marshes. Even with hurricanes and heat it’s a photographers heaven. And, the number of transplanted photographers is surprising. Thanks the comments, always look forward to them.
